Solid Waste Management Announces Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule



Lexington County Franchise Collection Service – Waste Industries Customers Rate Increase

Effective October 1, 2015 customers receiving Curbside Solid Waste and Recycling Collection service from Waste Industries (WI) will see an increase in their quarterly service rate.  The current rate of $47.67 will increase to $48.45 per quarter or an increase of $0.78 per quarter.  This increase is the first that Waste Industries customers have experienced since the contract for this service began in 2008 and reflects a Consumer Price Index (CPI) increase in expenses that the industry has experienced.  The Quarterly billing that customers will be receiving in September for the October through December quarter will reflect this increase.  This increase does not affect customers that currently receive service from the County’s other collection service provider, Advanced Disposal.
