Dear Rangely Trash Service customers:
Over the past several years our landfill has seen a major loss in revenue due to the slow down in oil field generated revenue. The landfill is facing losses of about $400,000 to $600,000 per year. These losses are cutting into the surplus funds that were built up during the boom. In an effort to help slow down the drain on the surplus funds the County Commissioners have passed a rate increase. The new rates are going to be nearly triple the low rates we have had in the past. The trash truck rate will go from $15.00 per ton to $40.00 per ton. the landfill rate is scheduled to increase every three (3) years going forward.
for more information on the landfill, the budges sheet can be found at http://www.co.rio-blanco.co.us/Archive.aspx?AMID=38 on that page click on 2018 financial statements and look for sold waste landfill page E-14.
We have not raised out rates since 2009 but we will have to start raising them now. The new rates will be on y our next bill. We are grateful to all our customers and look forward to serving you in the future.
Warm Regards, Shawn & Rob Morgan
