Trash fee going up, starting Friday

COLUMBUS, Ga. – You can expect to have a little bit less money in your pocket starting Friday – that’s because the fee for monthly trash collection in the Fountain City is going up.

It was $15 a month, but now it’s going to be $17. You can expect to see the change on your water bill. This comes after the city reduced weekly trash pickup from twice a week to just once a week back in September 2015.

Public Works officials say they have a critical need of money to replace trash trucks.

If you have any questions related to this change, please contact Citizen Services at 311 or 706-653-4000.
