On March 7, the City Council of Redwood City will consider whether solid waste rates should increase.
The proposals include a $2 increase for regular, scheduled, basic collection of residential solid waste and recyclable materials for 20-gallon bins; a $1 increase for regular, scheduled, basic collection of residential solid waste and recyclable materials for 32-gallon bins; and a 1.947 percent increase for unscheduled solid waste services.
The proposed rate increases “are designed to ensure that the revenue collected from the solid waste rates is sufficient to cover Recology’s full costs of providing solid waste services,” according to the city. Recology San Mateo County contracts with the city to provide these services.
In advance of the March 7 meeting, the city will discuss the proposed solid waste rate increase in a Zoom meeting at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 16 and also at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 3.
