On March 15, the City Council will hold a public hearing on proposed rate increases for residential solid waste collection to comply with SB 1383, a new law that requires Californians to separate organics waste, such as leftover food and kitchen scraps, from their trash and place it in their green waste bins. There have been no rate increases since July 2020.
The Council will consider approving a rate increase of 15.6% for single-family customers, as well as an inflation-only rate increase of 3% for multi-family customers (this increase does not include the cost of organics recycling services, which will depend on each multi-family complex’s service level).
The Council previously approved an agreement with EDCO to begin offering organics waste collection to residential customers after April 1. Please keep an eye on your mailbox for information and instructions from EDCO.
The hybrid in-person/virtual meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in McTaggart Hall at Hesse Park and via Zoom. Watch live on the City website or on RPVtv Cox 33/Frontier FiOS 38.
