The Dickinson city commission voted no on a proposal for curb side recycling, after only receving one offer.
The city rejected the request for proposal because the rate was out of their price range.
G and G Garbage Inc. in Dickinson was offering their services at nine dollars per household a month.
The commission was hoping for less than six dollars.
City administrator Shawn Kessel says he was surprised the city only received one offer, after talking with a number companies who seemed to be interested.
Kessel says if they can’t find a company to do it, the city will take on the service themselves.
“Recycling isn’t going to go away in town,” he said. “It’s just a matter of who is going to be the service provider.”
The city commission will continue to seek companies to provide the service for another three week period.
