City garbage rates increase; make way for the pink cart

By From page A1 | June 02, 2014

The Placerville City Council approved the increase of weekly garbage service rates in the city at the May 27 meeting, but the increase may not be too painful. Residential customers with 35-gallon carts will see a raise of 26 cents per month; 64-gallon cart users will see a raise of 40 cents and 96-gallon cart rate payers will see an increase of 48 cents. Seniors with 35-gallon carts will see no increase at all, while seniors with 64-gallon carts will have a raise in rates of 36 cents.
