Ukiah Waste Solutions Proposes Larger Can Fees for All

Ukiah Waste Solutions is proposing charging all residential customsers for a 32-gallon can, regardless of the amount of garbage they dispose of. Additionally, after January 1st, no can smaller than the largest would be made available to new customers. Some residents say the proposal makes them feel lilke they are being punished for reducing their waste, since savings would be eliminated. The City Council will hold a hearing Dec. 6 to collect public comment on the proposed rate increase. Customers can also submit protest letters and must be received by the City Clerk before or during the public hearing.
