Residential Garbage Collection Fee to Increase by $1 after Oct. 1

September, 27, 2018, Green Cove Springs, FL – After Oct. 1, the monthly residential garbage and trash collection fee will increase from $18 to $19.

Green Cove Springs City Council approved the increase at the September 18 meeting. The increase in the fee was originally discussed during budget workshop meetings in August. The $1 increase will generate $35,000 in revenue for the upcoming fiscal year, which will assist in funding the city’s solid waste utility.

Garbage pickup will continue to be twice a week for all city residences, and yard trash and recycling pickup will continue to be once a week under this new fee.
