The Phoenix City Council will consider a solid waste rate increase this year. We are asking all members who live within the City of Phoenix to please take a few minutes and take the survey at Phoenix.gov/trashandrecycle.
Should the proposed rate increase fail, many city employees will lose their jobs. This will also open the door to more outsourcing, which negatively affects all of us. ASPTEA is working with the Public Works Department and Mayor and Council to prevent this from occurring.
Solid waste rates, like the salaries of many city employees, have not had an increase in a decade.
