Bulk Waste Removal

Mitchell Schnaible ASKED

My name is Mitchell Schnaible. I am currently doing an internship in the city manager's office of Delaware, Ohio. I am looking at different methods of bulk trash removal for cities that do not contract waste removal services. Delaware operates its own refuse and waste removal service but has no plan in place for the removal of bulk waste. The tentative plan we are analyzing is to charge a flat rate of $25 dollars for 3 bulk trash items (furniture, appliances) and 10$ for every additional piece of bulk trash. Will this be enough to offset the cost of removal?, or does the city need to be looking at possibly charging more for items? or scaling the cost of items based on their size and how easily they can be disposed of? I am also open to suggestions about other methods that have worked
