''Anderson estimated the cost for trash and recyclable collection for the coming year using the automated system would be about $880,000, while if the city were to continue the manual method would put the cost at about $1.3 million.''

Casella will not continue manual collection after the end of the current multi-year contract.

What you seem to be reading-in is the discussion about the city going in-house on the service rather than out-to-bid.

I believe Myers and Hosmer were concerned on that due to costs.
The Director of Public Works would simply get a bigger staff, bigger fleet, bigger budget, and maybe a big ole raise for the extra management effort.

The same decision will need to be made by Belmont; and I have a rough idea that it is going to be a pain.
