Recycling will cost you more

waste-costMedford, Ore.– You may have to pay more to recycle.  Rogue Disposal and Recycling Inc. explained its plan to increase customer costs to Jackson County Commissioners Tuesday morning, outlining an increase of $2.19 per month for residential customers and an increase of $17.95 a month for commercial businesses.

Representatives say the rise in cost is directly connected to the worldwide drop in demand for recycled materials.

“The cost of doing business continues to increase and specifically the cost to recycle continues to increase,” says Garry Penning, Director of Governmental Affairs and Marketing.

Rogue Disposal and Recycling Inc. serves customers throughout Jackson County.  The increase goes into effect January first of 2017.
