Recology and Muni Rate Increases Coming

  • PDF

     Recology has applied to raise the rates for trash, recycling and compost pick-up.

     The City’s Refuse Rate Board has received an application from Recology, the San Francisco refuse collection and disposal processing company, for an increase in residential refuse collection and disposal rates for trash, recyclables, and compostables (black, blue, and green bin services).



Recology is requesting to rebate surplus revenues to ratepayers and to increase rates, for an effective increase of 16.40% in the first year (or about $5.70 a month for an average single family home), 4.98% in the second year, and 0.62% in the fourth year. Without rebates, rates would increase by an average of 22.96% in the first year. Recology is also requesting to modify the previously approved cost of living adjustment formula. If the increases are approved, the City and Recology anticipate that new rates would go into effect on July 1, 2017.
