The monthly fee for trash and curbside recycling pickup in Crothersville will not increase for 2017.
But in 2018, residents will see a 2 percent increase in their monthly bill.
On Tuesday night, the Crothersville Town Council unanimously approved a two-year contract for trash and recycling collection with Rumpke of Indiana. The town also sent a bid request to Best Way Disposal, but that company responded with a letter saying it was not submitting a bid at this time.
The town has contracted with Rumpke for trash pickup for at least 18 years and recycling pickup for about six years.
Each month in 2017, the trash and recycling fee will be $9.47, which is what residents currently pay.
In 2018, the monthly bill will increase to $9.66.
Council President Lenvel “Butch” Robinson said Rumpke representative Richard Leslie worked hard to keep the price down as much as possible.
