ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - The City of St. Paul says it is moving forward with extending its contract with five garbage haulers to service residents in the city.
Under the proposed 18-month extension, not much would change for customers. The city says there would be no charge increase in 2024 and a slight increase in 2025 for customers with small carts. Customers with larger carts would pay more.
The city blames increased fees at the Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy Center for the upcharge.
St. Paul currently holds a contract with St. Paul Haulers LLC, a "consortium of five garbage haulers" that serve tens of thousands of homes and buildings in St. Paul.
