We are working with a municipality that currently does not provide waste collection for its residents; residents must hire their own hauler to collect waste. Attempts to have collection bundled as part of their municipal services have never passed council because it will increase the tax rate. I would like to hear from other municipalities who have attempted a Pay as You Throw program that charges collection as a separate item or utility and is not bundled into the tax rate.

Thank you
