Irving Wants To Increase Rate On Solid Waste Services Again, A Month After The Last Increase

At the July 22, 2021 council meeting, the Irving City Council approved a monthly rate increase for Solid Waste Service.  The rate went from $24.42 to $25.42, an increase of $1.  

Now, the city is scheduling public hearings to discuss additional rate increases 

The recommendation for increases rates came from the long-term strategic plan for the landfill and the solid waste cost of service analysis studies presented at the August 18 City Council Budget Retreat. 

Two public hearings are scheduled for Sept. 2 and 16 to seek public input on this second proposed rate increase to Irving’s solid waste services.  According to the City of Irving, the proposed increases will help fund needed capital improvement projects to maximize the city’s Hunter Ferrell Landfill life expectancy and continue addressing solid waste services operational needs. 

The proposed increases would provide funding for capital improvements, equipment purchases, and operational needs. If approved, the proposed rate increases would begin October 1, 2021. Irving residents would see an additional 16% increase on the monthly solid waste rate.
