The city has started mailing out notices to all residents informing them of the upcoming conversion to automated garbage collection and of price increases.
Layton will convert to the automated system later this month and during October. Monthly garbage fees will also be raised from $10.20 to $12.70 this fall. Half the price increase is due to automated collection and the rest to an increase last July in tipping fees by the burn plan.Residents who will require more than one 105-gallon automated garbage container will pay an extra $5 a month per each additional can. They will also be able to rent an extra can for six-month intervals in order to dispose of additional garbage such as yard waste.
