Public Hearings Will Discuss Proposed Solid Waste Services Rate Increase

Irving Solid Waste Services truck with workers pick up refuse in a neighborhood.

Based on recommendations from the long-term strategic plan for the landfill and the solid waste cost of service analysis studies presented at the Aug. 18 City Council Budget Retreat, two public hearings are scheduled for Sept. 2 and 16 to seek public input on a second proposed rate increase to Irving’s solid waste services. The proposed increases will help fund needed capital improvement projects to maximize the city’s Hunter Ferrell Landfill life expectancy and continue addressing solid waste services operational needs. 

The proposed increases provide funding for capital improvements, equipment purchases, and operational needs. If approved, the proposed rate increases would begin October 1, 2021. Irving residents would see an additional 16% increase on the monthly solid waste rate.
