City Considers Garbage Service Expansion

The Hood River City Council will get a report at its meeting Monday evening on potential expansion of garbage service.  Curbside composting, more refined recycling options, yard waste pickup, and standardized roll carts for streamlined pickup are all on the table.  City Manager Steve Wheeler says such a move would raise residential garbage rates in the City by $7.25 a month, which would be about a 40 percent increase.  Mayor Paul Blackburn says the Council is now to the point of taking public input before making any decisions, emphasizing this is not a done deal.  A municipal committee involving three Councilors, garbage service provider Waste Connections, Tri-County Hazardous Waste and Recycling, and others have been involved in putting together the proposal.  The Council will receive that report at its meeting beginning at 6 p.m. Monday in Hood River City Hall.
