LA PUENTE – The City Council on Tuesday will consider raising residential trash rates by 5 percent and commercial rates by 10 percent.
Trash hauler Valley Vista Services proposed raising monthly residential rates by $1.13 to $23.32, according to a report from the city. Commercial monthly rates could increase by $18.93 to $208.27, according to the report.
The city’s staff recommended the council approve the increase. The residential rate is little less than average for area cities.
Glendora, for instance, charges $25.61 monthly for residential customers.
In neighboring Hacienda Heights, Valley Vista charges $17.50 a month for residential customers, but that rate is expected to increase in the coming years.
The meeting in La Puente is at 7 p.m. at City Cally, 15900 E. Main St.
