2019 Rate Adjustments

This serves to notify our customers that Westside Disposal, Inc. has submitted a request for the annual rate adjustment as allowed by contract with the City of Fircrest. If granted, the proposed rates would become effective March 1, 2019. The rate adjustment is made up of 2 parts: (1.) A disposal fee increase effective March 1, 2019 at the LRI landfill. The disposal rate will change from the current $157.38 to $164.34 per ton, an increase of 4.42%. (2.) A CPI based annual adjustment of 2.38%.

Due to a worldwide over-supply and weak demand for materials, we are also requesting a nominal 2.74% recycling commodity surcharge to be placed on all base rates for 12 months beginning March 1, 2019.
