Garbage pick up in Mount Shasta City:

1.) 5 a.m., or the night before, will not work in Mount Shasta, for putting out trash, since the bears will get to everyone’s can, and Mount Shasta will be awash in smelly trash all over the ground. 8 a.m. has worked fine for many years.

2.) An RFP was sent out?

And that is how it was determined that John Smith Sanitation, a family business serving this community faithfully for so many years, is no longer the city's provider?

Did anyone in charge contact John Smith Sanitation directly?

That would be the courteous and ethical thing to do.
