Pflugerville City Council approved a trash rate increase for both in-city and out-of-city residents at its Feb. 25. meeting. The item was approved on consent agenda, meaning no discussion was held prior to voting on the item.

The rate increases approved by council include a $3.04 increase on its monthly trash rate, a $0.71 increase for an additional trash cart and a $1.43 hike for an added recycle cart, per the release.


The current in-city and out-of-city trash rates are listed as $15.90 and $17.90, according to the release. Following approval, the new rates will be listed as $18.94 and $20.94, or a 19.12% and 16.98% increase, respectively.

The city's current trash and recycling services—trash pickup once weekly and recycling pickup every other week—will not change with the rate increase, according to a Feb. 11 city news release on the then-proposed rate increase. The rate change will go into effect March 1.
