50 percent discount on solid waste bill

At their Dec. 13 meeting the Nipomo Community Services District board approved a request from the garbage company for a 1.6 percent rate increase in 2018 and a one-time discount to district customers’ solid waste bill.

South County Sanitary Services (SCSS) requested a Consumer Price Index adjustment of 1.6 percent across its service area, which equates to approximately 35 cents per month for a single family home. The requested rate adjustment is to cover increases in the cost of services and landfill expansion.

District customers will see a one-time 50 percent reduction in their bi-monthly solid waste bills thereby getting two months of service for the price of one.
