CalMet rate adjustment approved

March 25, 2016

The Cerritos City Council approved a proposed rate increase by CalMet Services, Inc. for solid waste collection and recycling services in the City.

Monthly residential rates will go up 1.4 percent, bringing the new monthly cost to $17.60, an increase of 24 cents. Commercial bin rates will be raised 0.7 percent and the roll-off dumpster rate will see a 1.1 percent increase.

The new rates will be assessed retroactively to January 2016, which will result in a retroactive charge of $0.48 on residential March/April 2016 invoices.

Despite the rate hikes, Cerritos maintains one of the lowest residential trash and recycling rates in Los Angeles County.
