Garbage wars: Private hauler says competition heating up
Published 11/04/2009, The Daily Republic
Competition in the local garbage-collection industry isn’t new, but one of the city’s private haulers says the competition is heating up.
Larry Petrik, owner of Petrik Sanitation, said recently that he’s adding two to three new residential customers per week in Mitchell. He said he’s getting them from the city and Miedema Sanitation, which are the only other garbage haulers in town.
