WHEREAS, BE IT RESOLVED, by the City Council of the City of Amboy, Minnesota that the garbage rate per residential unit is hereby increased to $12.15 per month, plus tax, for the regular residential garbage service using the 35 gallon garbage container (or up to 2-30 gallon bags per week) and that the rate for reduced rate residential unit using a 35 gallon garbage container (or up to 2-30 gallon bags per week) is hereby increased to $10.80 per month plus tax.

Rates for residential units using the next level of refuse collection service, a 64-gallon garbage container, will be $14.47 per month, plus tax, for regular residential garbage service users and $12.96 per month, plus tax, for reduced rate residential units.

Units wishing to use more than one garbage container at their residence will be billed based on the charge for the size of garbage container(s) they have times the number of containers they are using.

If one of these residential units wishes to set out more garbage than can be put into the container they are using, a tag must be purchased to put on each additional garbage bag set out. Tags will be available at City Hall for a cost of $2.25 per tag.

These rates will be effective for refuse service after January 1, 2023.

Also, be it resolved that the recycling rate per residential unit is hereby increased to $5.18 per month. This price increase includes recycling every week. This rate increase will be effective for recycling services after January 1, 2023.

These increases to the rates are reflective of the 8.2% increase by LJP Refuse Company.
