Rate Increase Effective April 2020

On June 17th, the Windsor Town Council voted in favor of our request for a rate increase. This rate increase is effective back to April 1, 2020. This increase, along with the retroactive increase back to April 1, will be reflected on your next statement.

Why did rates increase on April 1, 2020?2020-06-19T08:22:05-07:00

In November 2018, Sonoma County Resource recovery notified the Town of Windsor that we were not able to meet its financial obligations. This was due to unforeseen and uncontrollable factors which included labor rates increasing in the county, the value of recyclable commodities dropping significantly as a result of China’s national sword policy coming into effect, differences in actual disposal, recyclables and organics tonnages compared to the available data at the time of the RFP and additional services provided to Town of Windsor designated locations.  This rate increase helps the company to cover these additional costs.  In addition, it includes the contract approved annual rate adjustment.

The Town Council approved the rate increase to be effective April 1, 2020 (meaning this increase is effective retroactively to April 1, 2020). This is to align with the new annual rate adjustment date of April 1.
