Yard waste stickers go on sale next week

DANVILLE — Residents might have been willing to pay $5 more for yard waste stickers last year, but the cost is increased by another $5 this year.

The Solid Waste Division of Danville Public Works announces yard waste stickers will go on sale Wednesday.

Yard waste stickers are $30 and are sold at the city’s finance office at the Robert E. Jones Municipal Building, 17 W. Main St. They also will be available for purchase over the phone by calling 431-2200 on or after Feb. 20.

Stickers are good for one calendar year.

Public Works Director Doug Ahrens said the city sells about 2,400 stickers a year. Last year the stickers increased from $20 to $25 each.

The next few years will see more of an increase in yard waste sticker fees. The fee will increase to $35 in 2014 and $40 in 2015 and 2016.

There are 10,800-plus garbage customers in the city.

Some residents have voiced concerns in the past, and also voiced wishes for recycling collection for cardboard and other items.

In February 2012, Mayor Scott Eisenhauer provided the majority eighth vote needed to approve a new schedule of garbage and yard waste fee increases.

Council members voted 7-6 to approve increased garbage and yard waste sticker fees to pay for the solid waste program, equipment and other expenditures during the next five years.

Also under the new fee schedule, the $18 monthly garbage fee will increase to $19.25 in April 2013; $20.50 in 2014; $22 in 2015; and $23.50 in 2016.

The Solid Waste Division also informs residents that the spring collection period, which is weekly and allows both bags and toters, will begin April 1 and last until April 26.

The toter-only collection period begins April 29.

Toters may be purchased for $65. The toter can be paid for at the Robert E. Jones Municipal Building. It will be delivered to the residence.

FYI

Yard waste zone maps and rules are available at the Danville Public Works website: http://www.danvillepublicworks.org.

Questions regarding the program can be directed to 431-2288.
