BAKER - The Baker City Council has renewed its solid waste services contract and entered into a new agreement with its waste service company to provide recycling carts to residents who recycle household trash.

The current contract with BFI Waste Services LLC, doing business as Allied Waste Services of Baton Rouge, expires in May 2014.

By renewing its contract with the waste disposal company more than a year early, Allied Waste spokeswoman Karla Swacker says the city gets a 30-cent per household cost reduction for garbage and trash services.

The city's current per-household cost of $20.18 rolls back to $19.88 per household in May.

Officials say the city also plans to update its recycling program.
