2019 Rate Adjustments
University Place Refuse Service, Inc. has been approved for the annual rate adjustment as allowed by contract with the City of University Place. The increase becomes effective March 1, 2019. The increase is made up of 2 parts: (1.) The dump fee increase by Land Recovery, Inc. They are raising the garbage disposal fee from the current $157.38 to $164.34 per ton, an increase of 4.42%. (2.) A cost of living increase of 2.31%.
Due to a worldwide over-supply and weak demand for materials, we have also been granted a nominal 2.57% recycling commodity surcharge to be placed on all base rates for 12 months beginning March 1, 2019.
