Residents and commercial properties owners in the city of Danville may see a 3.3-3.7% hike in their trash and recycling service rates. The Town Council along with the Contra Costa County Solid Waste Authority (CCCSWA) planned a measure to increase the trash and recycling service rates in order to cover the costs and ensure adequate reserve.
The new measure calls for the typical single-family monthly bill to rise to $24.71 for a 32 gallon weekly trash and recycling service, a 90% increase compared to current rates. If this measure pass, starting March 1, 2014 residential plans will see a hike in their monthly bill:
- $0.80 for 20-gallon service
- $1.14 for 64-gallon service
- $1.70 for 96-gallon service
Commercial properties will see a hike in their monthly cost for a 2-yard dumpster with weekly pickup from $270.25 to $279.22, a $8.97 rate increase.
Fast Haul, a junk removal and trash hauling services coving the Bay Area including the city of Danville, provide reasonable rates with superior services. For large items such as old appliances or electronics components (that can contain hazardous materials), local trash removal bins are not an option for disposing of them, and Fast Haul is a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly alternative to remove your trash or junk in Danville.
