Council raises trash collection fees

August 27, 2014

An unfortunate fact Big Spring residents are only too aware of is that trash costs money — and it’s about to get even more expensive.

Spurred on by the need to pay for a new landfill, Big Spring City Council members approved new trash collection rates by a 6-to-1 vote during their Tuesday night meeting. Marvin Boyd was the only council member who voted against the measure.

The new rates, which are expected to take effect by Oct. 1, will result in residential customers paying $3.60 more per month on their utility bills, while commercial customers will pay between $32.04 and $164.64 a month, depending on the level of service they receive from the city.
