Athens Services has an exclusive franchise agreement for the City of Monrovia. This area includes commercial, industrial facilities and bin enclosures within the City limits.
- Our current solid waste service agreement with Athens Services takes into account annual mandated State of California minimum wage increases, along with Consumer Price Index related cost impacts effective July 1, 2017.
- This means that the monthly cost for the typical 3-yard bin that requires pick-up once per week is $172.24 / month.
- For comparative purposes, costs for the same level of service from around the region are as follows:
Sierra Madre $154.80 West Hollywood $161.66 Covina $163.51 Monterey Park $164.68 Glendora $169.34 Monrovia $172.24 West Covina $183.13 Temple City $199.99 San Gabriel $202.82 South El Monte $210.98 Irwindale $221.20
- As the above cost overview illustrates, even with the new organics program implemented, Monrovia still has one of the lower commercial trash service costs in the area.
