City Wants Input From Residential Property Owners on Garbage and Recycling Billing
SAN JOSE, Calif. - The City of San José is looking at new ways to bill for Recycle Plus residential garbage and recycling service to replace the current, outdated system operated directly by the City. Residential property owners are encouraged to take the survey at www.sanjoseca.gov/recycling-garbage.
This survey is for residential property owners with curbside cart service. Community input will help the City evaluate billing options for residences. Potential billing changes will not affect customers with dumpster service.
“We’re evaluating how we can take advantage of pre-existing billing services and technology to help us avoid higher costs in the future,” said Kerrie Romanow, Director of the City’s Environmental Services Department. “Getting resident input is an important part of the evaluation process. Taking the survey is a great way for the public to get involved with what we’re doing.”
Property owners who complete the survey can enter to win a free curbside collection of up to three bulky items, including sofas, mattresses, refrigerators, or other large items. The service has a value of $26.00. The survey is online in English, Spanish or Vietnamese now through April 17, 2013. Residents with questions can email RecyclePlus@sanjoseca.gov or call (408) 535-8550.
