Trash could get expensive in La Puente

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.

    Now that’s garbage!

    There is no incentive to throw less trash away if everyone has to pay the same fee, regardless of volume or required frequency. It runs opposite to the “reduce, reuse, recycle” garbage they spend public money to advertise to the masses……stupid masses not paying attention to the ridiculous attack the elected officials are mounting on access to your money.

    They just raised the rates last year. Don’t you fools pay attention??

  • the eye in the sky

    The fools in La Puente do not pay attention as to the problems inside and outside city hall. The residents deserve better than what city hall has provided over the years which is nothing.



    I will restore the publics trust in government.

    David Argudo is a liar and a crook like little lujan. Maybe the state should make them prison mates so they can share stories on how they robbed the city blind.
