Austell to consider recycling rate increase

The Austell City Council will consider a monthly increase for recycling services at a meeting 7 p.m. Monday in the Council Chambers, Austell City Hall, 2716 Broad St. SW.

This proposed increase would be 5 cents a month from $3.09 to $3.14, Randy Bowens, director of the city’s Public Works Department, told the AJC.

However, the $9.15 monthly charge for sanitation, also by Republic, will remain unchanged for the weekly pickups, he added.
