Elk Grove garbage pick-up fees by Republic Services to increase on July 1

On July 1, Elk Grove garbage customers will pay higher fees to Republic Services, the city's contracted garbage collector. Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and her city council will approve the higher fees during the June 12 city council meeting.

According to the notice on the city's website, ratepayers will experience a three percent across-the-board increase. The new rates are shown in the chart below. 

Along with garbage collection, Republic Services also gathers customers recycle and organic garbage. 

According to rate increase notice, "Solid waste service rates are based on refuse cart size and refuse cart quantity. Upon request, residents can have a total of three organics carts and three recycle carts at no additional charge."

Mayor Singh-Allen's June 12 meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Elk Grove City Hall.

I love how bureaucrats word things. On the chart, instead of calling it an increase, they call it an adjustment. Sanitizing things, I suppose.

EGN failed to mention the most important point: This will be a public hearing item and all interested residents will each have three whole minutes to help the City Council decide how to vote!
