LAWRENCEVILLE -- Trash pick-up will cost more in 2012 for Gwinnett residents.
But after an initial assessment on tax bills in 2010 for 18 months of service, the assessment on this year's bills will be lower.
According to county officials, the increase of 30 cents per month is due to terms of a contract reached with hauling companies last year as part of a court settlement. It was calculated based on increases in the consumer price index and rising fuel prices, a press release said.
That brings the total monthly fee to $18.16 for the collection of trash, bulky items and recycling. For the year, that comes to $217.92, which will be charged on the tax bills due to be sent in the mail next week. Payments are due in November.
