Is the new contract likely to be more costly?

Yes, and based on the experiences to date of other Pennsylvania municipalities, including those in our area (prime example is South Whitehall where new contract rates soared 62% , it would be unsurprising if the new fees are not significantly higher than the current rate, and quite possibly double. The Township will do everything possible to include in the bidding process every Pennsylvania licensed, qualified hauling contractor.
