City Council Approves Rate Increase for Recology

New garbage rates will be effective Jan. 1, 2013.

City Council unanimously approved a rate increase for Recology Monday.

The final protest tally at the end of the City Council meeting counted 222 votes, or 1.9 percent of the Recology customers.

Pacifica customers already pay some of the highest rates in the county, according to data provided to Patch by Recology, the private waste management company that serves most of San Mateo County.

The new garbage rates will be effective Jan. 1. The rate increase also affects businesses and all other Recology services. Rates will increase by 1.4 percent.

The new rates for residential customers are:

20 gallon can — $23.38

32 gallon can — $36.63

48 gallon can — $54.93

64 gallon can — $73.25

96 gallon can — $109.88

This from Patch's earlier article on trash rates: "Note: Recology declined to provide rates for 20 and 96 gallon containers in Pacifica, Montara and El Granada." "Declined to provide?" You've got to be kidding! Publicly published rates are not quoted? Out with this company.

Sorry I have to follow you all over the blogs to correct the allusions you perpetuate Lionel, but again your PATCH friend and author of this article never called me and why do you think that is if the information they wanted was from the franchises I am the general manager of? Did you block my number on his cell?

Chris, What the heck are you talking about? Has denying reality and failing to give out rates to reporters made you spacey? So here's the question posed by a Patch reporter to Recology's spokesperson: What does it cost to have a 20-gallon can of garbage collected in Montara? Chris, Can you answer that question for the Patch readers?
