GOING GARBAGE RATE INCREASE

Our garbage and recycling pickup provider, Going Garbage, wanted to bring to your attention a slight increase in your monthly rate per residence from $15.85 to $16.23, as outlined in their agreement with the Town of Lincoln and reflected on the latest invoice received by the township. This increase is 2.4%, which reflects the annual rate for the last two years. Last year there was no increase in the rate, which saved the Town residents 1.5% on curbside pickup services. Based on current trends, rising costs may have an impact on the price next year if the trend continues.
