On August 11, 2008, the Council approved a 3% increase to the Leonardtown trash service charges. This is necessary to cover the 3% price increase approved for the Town’s contractor, Goode Trash Removal. This increase is effective retroactively to July 1, 2008 and will appear on the utility invoices dated September 30, 2008. The new quarterly residential trash service charge will be $62.14. We believe this is an excellent value for twice a week garbage collection and once a week recycling service.
For commercial customers, the town and contractor are working together to develop a cost effective commercial single stream recycling program. Customers will be notified as information becomes available.
