Garbage rates will soon go up three dollars for residents of Grenada County, the first garbage increase in 10 years.
The Grenada County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Monday on the garbage fee adjustment that will raise house to house garbage pick up from $13 to $16 per month. It takes effect in April.
“The last garbage increase we had was 10 years ago,” said District One Supervisor Michael Lott. “Garbage is just about the only thing in those 10 years that hasn’t gone up.”
District Two Supervisor Chad Bridges made the motion for the adjustment, and the motion was seconded by District Three Supervisor Columbus Hankins.
According to a Public Notice (See Page A-3), the decision was made after discussion of a 30 percent increase in the cost of collection imposed by Waste Pro of Mississippi Inc.
