Trash / Recycling Rate

Overview


$21.37 per month for residents using barrels
$18.29 per month for residents using bins

This portion of the rate pays for trucks to go to your home, pick up the trash, and take it to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) where recyclables are removed. The rate covers the cost of removing recyclables from the waste at the MRF, hauling costs to get the residue to the landfill, and disposal charges imposed by the landfill.

For residents using barrels, this portion of the rate pays for separate pick up of green waste and covers charges imposed by the landfill to use green waste as a cover material at the landfill. This portion of the rate was adjusted by changes in the consumer price index (CPI), and by changes in actual costs to process and dispose of waste.
