Garbage Sticker Rate Increases July 1
The cost for garbage/yard waste and leaf stickers will increase on July 1, 2012, as set by Wheaton’s four-year contract with its waste hauler, Veolia. Blue garbage/yard waste stickers will cost $3.48 each and leaf stickers will cost $2.86 each.
This “pay-as-you-throw” structure encourages you to recycle, since no stickers are needed for recycling, and you only pay for as much garbage/yard waste as you produce. For more information about Wheaton's garbage and recycling program, see that section of the City's website.
