Why does Pacifica pay one of the highest rates for garbage collection in San Mateo County?
The City of San Bruno proposed a 1.62 percent rate increase from Recology in 2020. See report link below.
Pacifica's proposed increase this year is 5.51 percent. Pacifica, according to the City of San Bruno report, pays the third-highest rate in the surveyed county cities for a 32-gallon cart.
Pacifica's solid-waste contract has never been put out to competitive bidding.
I think the result is self-evident.
