WASTE MANAGEMENT SERVICE UPDATE—NEW SERVICE CONTRACT CHANGES PER NEGOTIATIONS WITH CCSC POA BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  • Weekly Trash Collection
    • Current Rate: $14.70/Month
    • Proposed Rate: $15.70/Month
      • Primary factors for increase in year 1 include inflation (CPI is > 7%) and instability in diesel fuel markets.
      • WM’s previous annual price increases have not kept us in step with increases in cost
      • Includes 1 96-Gallon or 64-Gallon Cart

 

  • Optional Every-Other-Week Recycling Collection
    • Current Rate: $6.00/Month for Weekly Service
    • Proposed Rate: $8.20/Month for EOW Service
      • Recycling processing costs have outpaced our annual increase since the inception of the last contract, and as a result WM is not able to cover 100% of costs with the current rate.
      • A switch to EOW recycling optimizes collection, allowing WM to offset increased costs without dramatically increasing rates.
      • Includes 1 96-Gallon or 64-Gallon Cart

 

  • Optional Weekly Yard Waste Collection
    • Current Rate: $9.50/Month
    • Proposed Rate: $21.40/Month
      • WM’s Composting Partner has dramatically increased processing costs starting in 2020, and as a result WM cannot cover 100% of costs with the current rate.
      • Extremely low participation rates (12 homes) have also contributed to the increased cost to service.
  • 3 Year Contract
  • Effective July 1st, 2022

  • Recycling and Yard Waste are Opt-In Services
  • Additional Carts for Trash and Recycling are $1.50 Each

 

An additional piece of information

Jimmie, our much appreciated trash man for several years, recently applied for and successfully received a promotion and a new position with Waste Management.  Therefore, he will no longer be the trash man dedicated to serving our subdivision.  However, in his new “swing” position Jimmie will occasionally return to be our trash man.  Be sure to congratulate Jimmie if you have the opportunity.
