Representatives from Athens notified the city recently of their formal request to institute a 4.77% increase for solid waste services which takes effect July 1, 2019. This particular adjustment takes into account both CPI and California State minimum wage cost increases. These increases are consistent with the terms for rate increases that area included in the city’s current contract with Athens Services.

What does this mean for you? According to city officials, this means that:

  • For the typical residential customer (who is enrolled in the 90-gallon trash / recycling barrel program), solid waste services will increase by $1.50/month, from $31.53/month to $33.03/month
  • For the typical multi-family customer (who is enrolled in the one 3-yard bin which is serviced once per week), solid waste services will increase by $8.63/month, from $180.83/month to $189.46/month
  • For the typical commercial customer (who is enrolled in the one 3-yard bin which is serviced once per week), solid waste services will increase by $8.77/month, from $183.94/month to $192.71 month
