With the passage of City Ordinance #3886, the City Council voted on July 24, 2017, to increase the rates for garbage pickup, Excess Bag stickers, and the Transfer Station minimum charges.  All rate increases will take effect September 1, 2017.

Residential waste fees, which cover curbside trash, recycling, yard waste, and bulk brush pickup will have a service rate increase to $13.50 per month ($27.00 total on a regular two month water bill).

Stickers sold to authorize collection of extra trash bags will increase in price from $0.50 to $1.00 for each extra bag.  At this time, the yellow Excess Bags stickers are still in circulation at a cost of $0.50 each.  Beginning September 1, 2017, any extra trash bags or brown paper lawn bags put out for pickup will require two yellow stickers.  Once the supply of yellow stickers have been sold out, new pink Excess Bags stickers will be sold at $1.00 each, and one pink sticker will be needed for each extra bag.

Transfer Station standard rate fees will remain at $52.62 per ton (2000 pounds); however the minimum charge fees will increase.  Effective September 1, 2017, charges will change from 200 pounds or less at a minimum fee of $5.00 to a minimum fee of $10.00 for anything 380 pounds or less.
