McPherson Area Solid Waste Utility will be implementing a rate increase effective Jan. 1, 2019. These rates will appear on the invoice you receive the first week of February and show about a 3.5 percent increase in 2019 as well as a $.05 increase per month to the residential closed landfill fee.

Base rates for residential service are as follows in 2019:

1 Cart: $9.60

2 Carts: id="mce_marker"5.23

3 Carts: $23.79

4 Carts: $32.34

5 Carts: $40.91

The fuel sur charge will not be applied to the rates at this time. If at any point their six-month rolling average fuel costs exceed $2.50 per gallon, they will reinstate the fuel sur charge.
