Dear Town Multi-Family Property Manager/Homeowner Association:
For the past 13 years, the Town of Indian River Shores has authorized Republic Services to provide trash, recycling and yard waste collection to all Town residential dwellings as part of an exclusive franchise agreement. The agreement allows the Town to assure the high level of service demanded by our residents, and helps maintain the overall aesthetics that are so important in our community. The Town Council recently undertook a competitive procurement process to secure these vital solid waste collection services for our residents and businesses. This process enabled the Town to confirm that trash and recycling collection services will remain at the high standards we expect, while creating a significantly more transparent and equitable rate structure compared to the previous franchise agreement. Republic Services was selected by the Council. Although the new service will officially begin on January I. 2018, there will be no changes or interruptions to your established collection schedule. However. there is a new rate structure for these services. Republic Services will be contacting each HOA to verify the level of service desired and will need to update your billing records. Please see the attached summary of the new rates. This summary explains the new rates based on the specific size solid waste containers, frequency of service, and roll-out distance. Republic Services will continue to bill you as they have according to the rates from this sheet. The Town will also post these rates on its website for future reference. If you have any questions about your current collection services, the Town recommends you first contact your property manager who can contact Republic directly, or you may call Republic Services Customer Service at (772) 562-6620. For questions about the Town's franchise agreement or the procurement process, you may contact the ofce of the Town Manager at (772) 231-1771. Also, the Town’s initial efforts to obtain bids for the recycling collection resulted in unacceptable pricing. Therefore, the Town Council has requested a 4-month extension (January I. 2018 to April 30, 2018) for recycling collection by Republic Services while the Town re-bids the recycling collection services. The recycling rates during the extension period are included in the rate sheet attached. On behalf of the Town Council, I would like to thank all of our residents who help make Indian River Shores Florida’s premier residential community.
Thank you for your cooperation and awareness of this update.
Brian M. Barefoot, Mayor
|Container Size||1x Week ($/Mo)||2x Week ($/Mo)||3x Week ($/Mo)||4x Week ($/Mo)||5x Week ($/Mo)||6x Week ($/Mo)|
|Container Size||Monthly Container Rental||Extra Pick Up Charge ($/Per Pickup)||Container Roll Out Fee – Per Occurrence (10 ft to 50 ft)||Container Roll Out Fee – Per Occurrence (greater than 50 ft)|
Solid Waste Example: Condominium with three (3) two-yard (2 yd) waste containers, twice/week collection, with a roll-out greater than 50’ would be charged as follows
3 containers @ $108.25 = $324.75/mo +
3 (2 yd) container rentals @ $21/mo = $63/mo +
3 (2 yd) container roll-outs @ $3.68 roll-out fee per occurrence (4.33 weeks per month *2
collections per week) = $95.61/mo
Total monthly charge = $483.36/mo or $1450.08 billed quarterly
Recycling Example: Condominium with twelve (12) 95 gallon recycle carts with a roll-out of less than 50’ would be charged as follows
|Container Size||1x Week (&dollar/Mo)|
|Recycling Cart (64 or 95 gal)||$25|
12 recycling carts @ $25 = $300/mo + 12 roll-outs (10-50 ft distance) @ $1.84 roll-out fee per occurrence (4.33 weeks per month) = $95.61/mo
Total monthly charge = $395.61/mo or $1 186.83 billed quarterly
- The 4.33 weeks per month is calculated by dividing the 52 weeks in one year by 12 months.
- For recycling, please be aware that rates may convert from a per cart basis to a per dwelling unit basis in 2018.
