Refuse Rate Hearing Notice
The City’s Refuse Rate Board has received an application from Recology, the San Francisco refuse collection and processing company, for an increase in residential refuse collection and disposal rates for trash, recyclables and compostables (black, blue and green bin services). Recology is requesting an average increase of 21.51 percent, or about $6.60 a month for a single-family home. As part of that rate, Recology’s proposal would impose, for the first time, separate charges for the collection and disposal of recyclable and compostable materials. If the rate increase is approved, the City and Recology anticipate that the new rates would go into effect no earlier than August 1, 2013.
The Director of Public Works will hold a series of public hearings on Recology’s application in San Francisco City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, as follows:
May 20, 2013, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, Room 408
May 22, 2013, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Room 400
