Republic Services’ letter misinforms County customers
MEDINA — In a letter dated March 25, 2021, Republic Services notified their Medina County customers that the Medina County Solid Waste District (MCSWD) increased their disposal fees $5 per ton effective April 1, 2021, which resulted in Republic Services increasing all their Medina County customer’s disposal fees accordingly.
However, Republic Services’ letter is both incorrect and misleading. According to Sanitary Engineer Jeremy Sinko, the MCSWD did not increase disposal fees as indicated in Republic Services’ letter, but rather established a generation fee of $5 per ton effective April 1, 2021.
This fee is included in the MCSWD gate rate charged to all customers at the Recycle Medina County Transfer Station.
“The gate rate of $52 per ton did not increase on April 1, 2021,” Sinko said. “It remains the same as of the date of this press release.”
