Commercial Recycling is an optional service available upon request. The recycling container allows for a mix of recyclable materials in one container. The allowed recyclables include cardboard, plastic, newspaper, aluminum and tin. No glass is allowed in the recycling containers. Failure to use this container as described will result in an additional refuse container fee added to the utility bill.
** Recycling Rates Increase **Over the years, the costs of processing recycled materials climbed and the resale markets and international exports fell.
In 2018, as markets continued to slump, the city worked hard to absorb increasing costs. The cost and evaluation study showed that recycling processing costs had increased 185% since 2015.
The City’s Utility Advisory Committee and City Council considered staff analysis and voted, on January 2, 2019 to increase fees for residential and commercial recycling services. Residents and businesses who subscribe to curbside recycling will see a monthly increase starting in February. Residents with the standard 96-gallon blue container will see a ninety cent increase, from $5.70 to $6.60 a month, and businesses or those with a 300-gallon triple size recycling container will see an increase of $2.20, from $13.90 to $16.10.
