Seminole trash rates won't rise

City Council members have given Waste Management Inc. exclusive rights to the city's garbage and recycling contracts for the next three years. Collection rates will remain at $8.90 per month for homeowners, $5.50 for mobile home residents and $3.82 per cubic yard of garbage for businesses. Bills for the collection will arrive every three months. The city will continue to pick up the tab for curbside recycling at a cost of $1.57 per household every month. Garbage rates rise or fall next year if the county makes adjustments, according to the contract. "They can't arbitrarily go up," Mayor Holland Mangum said.
