Rumpke reaches five-year extension with city government

By Linda Ireland

Beginning Nov. 1, city residents will pay $2 more per month for weekly garbage pickup.

In a special meeting Aug. 26, Hodgenville City Council voted to extend the current contract with Rumpke for five years. The decision was unanimous.

Residential customers will pay $11.81 per month; senior citizens will pay $10.87 per month. Rumpke will negotiate rates for multi-family dwellings. The rates are guaranteed for two years and no monthly fuel surcharge will be added to the bills.

After that, Rumpke is permitted to increase rates annually.
