The Boardman City Council passed Resolution No. 10-2019 increasing the city’s garbage rate beginning July 1, 2019.
The increase is in response to a rate increase by the city’s garbage contractor, Sanitary Disposal, Inc. of Hermiston. Mike Jewett of Sanitary Disposal said it was necessary to raise the fee to the city due to an increase in operating expenses for Boardman, at about 8 percent overall.
This is the first increase in garbage rates in Boardman since 2016. The cost of a 90-gallon residential cart will go from $12.10 per month to $13.22 per month. For more information, call Boardman City Hall at 541-481-9252.
