On Monday, October 26th, Town Council approved a rate increase for trash & recycling services. As of January 1st, 2021, the charge for basic services will increase by $1.70. The total charge for one trash & one recycling cart will be $14.24. This basic service still includes twice-monthly bulk pickup.
Per the Town’s contract with Republic, our customers are subject to a rate increase of 3.5% each year. There were no increases for 2019 or 2020. The rate adjustment is related to the following:
- Annual cost increases for containers, trucks, employees
- Recycling processing costs continue to rise
- Disposal cost increases
Republic is including a 90-day green waste pilot program, which will be offered in the Spring of 2021.
