The City is unable to guarantee that the trash fee won't rise or, conversely, be reduced. The amount of the fee is directly related to the total costs of trash collection and disposal service that the city will incur. The fee is capable of being modified or repealed by future city authorities.
The City is currently investigating other options for a waste reduction action plan. Any new plan will be accompanied by an aggressive public education campaign and will focus on the Three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
