Residents who choose to hire their own hauler receive benefits from the City’s waste hauling program such as access to yearly bulky item and fall leaf drop off events.
They also benefit from reduced truck traffic in their neighborhoods, which will reduce wear and tear on the roads as well as reduce noise and air pollution. This is a community program that offers benefits for the entire community. The City worked hard to negotiate a lower minimum service rate for residents that choose to hire a different hauler. Other cities have higher minimum service rates.
