The city of Sacramento is proposing new rates for residential, garbage, yard waste, and recycling. The proposed rate increases will help address:
- More processing restrictions and shrinking markets for recyclables mean increase costs to recycle vs recyclables being a revenue stream
- New costs associated with securing long term yard waste and organics disposal for food waste collection starting in 2021
- Increasing costs for solid waste operations, such as vehicles, maintenance, fuel and disposal fees
- Labor cost increases
- Landfill maintenance expenses
The hearing will held on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 at 5:30 PM, City Hall Chamber – 915 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95814.
