Let’s Talk Trash in Carlsbad – It’s Gonna Cost You More to Get Rid of It
Happy Valentine’s Day! February 14th is the day in Carlsbad for the public hearing to discuss the proposed solid waste rate increases over the next 5 years, proposed by the City of Carlsbad.
The new rates, if approved, will be effective on July 1 of each of the next 5 years, beginning July 1, 2012.
Residents should all have received the flyer describing the proposed changes but you can review it below and download the flyer if you like.
The City’s solid waste hauler, Waste Management, will have a new contract that includes several new or enhances services so additional funding is needed.
The following are the general improvements offered by Waste Management in the new contract resulting in the proposed higher fees:
New “green” trash trucks mean less pollution
Single stream recycling – everything in one bin
Free rolling carts for trash/recycling/yard waste
Curbside bulky item/e-waste collection
New rates will vary with the size of the bins selected, and rates are proposed to change for multi-family and commercial customers.
Carlsbad residents/property owners have the right to complete and sign a written protest of the proposed rate changes for the City Clerk on or before the close of the hearing on Valentine’s Day.
