The Babylon Town Board unanimously voted on Tuesday to rescind a contract with the company hired to remove debris from superstorm Sandy, after it could no longer complete the work within the price agreed upon.
After its first day of service, Waste Solutions of L.I. Inc., said that it could not meet the original agreement, which required 25 trucks at $75 per cubic ton, Town Spokesperson Kevin Bonner said.
The job will now be done by En-Con Industries Corp., which is also the town's residential garbage collection company.
En-Con Industries Corp., which was the second-lowest bidder, will complete the debris pick up at a price of $123.23 per cubic ton.
En-Con began a 10-year contract to collect garbage in the Town of Babylon in September, when the board cut ties with Jody Enterprises, which had become involved in a recycling scheme.
