EcoHub Files Lawsuit Against City Of Houston

EcoHub CEO claims his company was left out of the bidding process for the city’s recycling contract.

The lawsuit by EcoHub seeks to compel the city of Houston to release documents and communications related to its new recycling contract

The city has refused to release them under the ‘Texas Public Information Act,’ citing attorney-client privilege.

EcoHub claims the city is unlawfully excluding the company from the bidding process to hire a new recycling firm.

Under the previous administration the city selected EcoHub for the so-called “One Bin for All” program. It would have collected all trash and recycling in one bin and separated them later in a yet-to-be-built facility.

But Mayor Sylvester Turner canceled the program in favor of a more conventional recycling program.
