City Commissioners Increase Garbage Rates

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - Bozeman City Commissioners made several changes to the waste management system during Monday's meeting.

The first change residents will see is a two percent increase on their garbage rates for customers who use a 100-gallon tote or smaller.

The single stream recycling where items can all be tossed into the same bin will also see a change. The new program will allow customers to have a 95-gallon that will be collected by an automatic collection truck, bi-weekly.

"It's a significant change for the city of Bozeman. We're very optimistic that's going to improve the recycling participation in our recycling program and the amount of material that's recycled out of the landfill," said Craig Woolard, Bozeman Public Works Director. "We're very excited about getting that program and we'll be implementing that in the next couple months."

The city is also looking into building a new 4,000 square foot garbage consolidation station. City Commissioners made no decision on Monday nights meeting because details such as truck traffic still need to be worked out.
