After a thorough annual review of operating costs, Portland City Council approved a garbage and recycling bill increase to cover higher fees for processing yard debris and food scraps. The increase also includes a surcharge for the voter-approved Portland Clean Energy Fund.
The monthly bill will go up 75 cents per month for most customers beginning July 1, 2019. The rate increase applies to residential garbage, recycling, and composting service at single-family homes and smallplexes up to four units. The City of Portland will re-evaluate the rates in Spring 2020.
