The contract calls for a price of $28.19 a month per household in the first year, $29.18 in the second year and $30.20 in the final year. The monthly fee for low volume households is $18/month plus a charge of $3 per 30-gallon bag.
Leaf and yard waste in excess of eight bags per pickup will be $3 per bag. Grass clippings in excess of four bags per pickup will be $3 per bag. One bulk item per month is included for free. An extra bulk item is $75.
Republic Services are currently setting up all the accounts in their system and they will be sending out information to the residents about the new account and access to their accounts on their website during the last week of October.
