Supervisors approve $2 increase on residential garbage rates
Beginning next year, residential and commercial garbage rates will be increasing for Union County residents.
The Union County Board of Supervisors approved a proposal Monday to raise residential rates by $2, effective Jan. 1, 2014.
The board began discussing the idea of raising garbage rates at the end of May
Board members cited the continual increase in fuel and equipment costs, as only two of the reasons for the decision to raise rates.
Members also said that the garbage fee has not been increased for county residents in a number of years.
A legal notice announcing the rate increase was published in the New Albany Gazette three times before the board voted on the issue.
The board said that residents affected by the increase will receive a notice in the mail along with their bill, so they will be aware of the new charges.
Commercial rates for garbage pick-up will increase also, but the rates are contingent on the amount of dumpsters on the property.
For a 4-yard dumpster, prices will increase to $10 for one pickup per week, $23 for two pickups and $33 for three pickups.
For a 6-yard dumpster, prices will increase to $15 for one pickup, $29 for two pickups and $40 for three pickups.
New extra dump fees will be $6.50 for a 4-yard dumpster and $7 for a 6-yard dumpster.
Ten dollars will be deducted on dumpsters for county residents who use dumpsters for their residential pickup also.
The next board meeting will be held at 10 a.m. on July 22, 2013 in the Union County Chancery Boardroom. The public is invited to attend.
