Trash Collection Fees Among Lowest In County

khts_citymatters_scvlogoIn a recent study, the City of Santa Clarita was shown to have the lowest commercial waste collection services among Los Angeles County's 88 cities with a rate of $67.04 per month for weekly three cubic yard bin collection service. The study reviewed the monthly rates of both residential and commercial customers.

 

"I'm gratified to see that Santa Clarita's rates for commercial waste services are the lowest in the County and our residential waste services are among the County's lowest. I'm particularly pleased that we were able to negotiate great contracts for our businesses and our residents that provide a lot of other services including bulky item pick ups, Christmas tree recycling, unlimited recycling for both residential and commercial clients, and a variety of new services like sharps disposal, used clothing recycling, and manure collections. These programs go a long way towards reducing the amount of waste our City sends to the landfill," explained Ken Pulskamp, City Manager.
