Saratoga Springs increases garbage fees

By Linda Petersen
SARATOGA SPRINGS Garbage collection fees have gone up. City officials say the fund has been operating at a loss and will soon be out of money if fees are not increased.

They say that increases charged to the city by Republic Service over the past five years have not been passed on to residents. Additionally, recycling costs have increased due to spoilage and a substantial decrease in the recycling market.

Fees for first and second garbage cans will increase from $11.69 to $12.65 per month by 96 cents for each can. Fees will stay the same for the recycling cans.

The new rates became effective December 5.
