Arithmetic seems to be a lost skill but the numbers tell the story:

Citizens are now paying $8 a month for garbage-pickup service; but once the new contract with Waste Connections goes into effect, that rate will increase to $10.50 a month.

That fee would be added to all customers’ water bills, with no way for residential customers to opt out. However, commercial customers may opt out provided they can prove they have other services to get rid of their garbage, such as a container to handle their garbage service.
