Paonia trustees were asked at the Feb. 27 board meeting to consider a resolution to increase town trash pick-up service by $1 per month. The proposed increase is in response to an increase in landfill tipping fees by the Delta County Landfill.
As a result of a price increase at the county-operated landfill, trash rates are going up in Hotchkiss.
Trash service is provided by Double J Disposal, which is in its third year of its current five-year contract with the town.
The Town of Paonia is considering a request for proposals for trash collection and disposal services. But whether the town will get out of the business of collecting trash is only in the discussion stage.
County officials and commercial trash haulers met last week to discuss the impact of a big increase in tipping fees under review for Adobe Buttes landfill.
Three commercial haulers and two county municipal governments that provide trash service told commissioners and county staff that the increases will be too big for their customers to swallow all at once.
