Trash Sticker Rate Increase - Effective May 1, 2016, the cost of a sheet of trash stickers will increase from $14.75 to $19.20. If you purchased sheets of stickers prior to May 1, 2016, you may continue to use them.
In addition, the yearly sticker will expire April 30, 2016 and a new yearly sticker will need to be purchased by May 1st, or Republic will not pick up your trash. The cost of a new yearly sticker for the coming Fiscal Year will be $211.19.
Please see the attached copies of minutes and the resulting Resolution that extended the contract for residential collection services. These outline the discussion at that time and the thought process that went into the decision made by the Board of Trustees. Republic Services has held the sticker price at the same rate for the last three years, but the Village will see an increase on May 1st that is somewhat higher than in the past. Future increases for the remaining years in the contract will be much lower.
