Commercial garbage rates to increase

A little more on the side, this side dump truck from John's Ag Service seems to be saying, as Humboldt Street Superintendent Chris Ubben (left) blows in snow as a result of last Thursday's 12-inch blast in Humboldt. The National Weather Service reported Humboldt County as the high precipitation total for the state from the late winter storm. Humboldt Independent photo.

Commercial solid waste collection fees will be going up for Humboldt businesses whom utilize the service, if an ordinance approved by the Humboldt City Council last week is passed on three readings.
The Council gave unanimous approval to changes that spell out defined amounts of garbage collected and sets rates for commercial customers who utilize the service.
The current ordinance says merely that commercial, industrial and institutional premises utilizing the city’s collection service, shall have a fee based on the premises’ waste volume, as determined by cubic yard lengths of containers and number of pick ups per week.
