Published 12:00 am Wednesday, April 28, 2010

County garbage rates will increase in June by 20 cents per resident.

Commissioners announced Tuesday that Allied Waste, the county’s current waste service provider, would raise residential garbage rates June 1 from $14.13 monthly to $14.51 monthly.

The new rate reflects a 2.68 percent increase in the consumer price index, Chairman Lynn Sasser said.
