On March 8th, City Council adopted the ordinance amending the service rate for the out-of-cycle and contaminated bulky waste pile in Chapter 12.5, Environmental Protection and Compliance, Article VIII, Solid Waste and Recycling, Division 4, Deposits, Rates and Collection, Section 12.5-841.1, Residential Collection Fees
Under the rules of the Bulk Waste Program (Program), residents are required to put their bulk materials out for collection by Monday at 7am of their assigned bulk week. Residents are also responsible for only putting out materials that are accepted in the bulk waste program. Bulk materials set out at the wrong time are considered “out-of-cycle” and bulk materials set out that are not allowed in the program are considered “non-compliant”.
The ordinance will amend section 12.5-841.1 of the City Code to increase the out-of-cycle and contaminated bulky waste pile collection rate as follows:
•From $75.00 per 5 cubic yards and $65.00 per 5 cubic yards thereafter, up to 30 cubic yards ($75.00 shall be minimum charged to household)
•To $123.52 per 5 cubic yards and $107.40 per 5 cubic yards thereafter, up to 30 cubic yards ($123.52 shall be minimum charged to household)
These new fees go into effect on August 1, 2022
