Garbage more costly

Garbage rates are going up in Electric City on Jan. 1, 2018. The good news is, not very much. If you use a 65-gallon container, your rates will go from $27.35 per month to $28.17. It’s all in keeping up with costs. Garbage collector Sunrise Disposal received a cost-of-living adjustment and the city is passing this cost on to its customers. The last time Electric City had a garbage rate increase was in 2012.
