Can a sanitation collector,city owned,enter into the commercial market(outside the city limits) and pick up trash for a fee, outside of their city limits. RE: Cheraw, Swink, Sugar City City and Rockyford Colorado
Yes, I think so, although they will lose their "sovereign immunity" in case of a problem. they would have to meet certain requirements, obey all ordinances, etc.

What does sovereign immunity mean,can I bid on their commercial/residential accts within the city limits?
Sovereign immunity is what prevents governments from being sued in most, but not all, situations.

Whether or not you can bid on their city accounts will depend on their ordinances and how they bid the work out. If they do it themselves and don't allow bidding I would argue that they are creating a "monopoly" and that while they are a city and may be entitled to do that within their city limits, once they started doing it as a business outside their borders they changed their status.

You are going to need a local lawyer to help you with this.
