LIVERMORE — Most residents in Livermore will pay a little more for their trash pickup starting July 1.

Sanitation rates will go up by 0.8 percent for the next fiscal year, applying to smaller size 20-gallon and 32-gallon containers. For customers with 20-gallon bins, the change equates to an 85 cent increase in their total monthly bills to $17.61, which is still among the lowest rates in the East Bay, according to city Public Works Director Dan McIntyre. Bills for 32-gallon containers will go up 55 cents to $27.51 per month, about the median price for East Bay cities.

The fee change, part of an annual review process, will affect about 85 percent of residential customers, McIntyre said, and offsets revenue shortages and inflationary increases to service and employee costs for Livermore Sanitation, Inc. The city council is set to give final approval to the new rate schedule at its June 10 meeting.
