The Round Rock City Council approved on first reading Thursday, Oct. 13, a $1.08 increase in the monthly fee charged to residential customers for trash and recycling services.

If approved on second reading at the next City Council meeting on Thursday, Oct. 27, the new rates will go into effect on bills mailed out beginning Nov. 10. Residential customers would pay a total of $22.14 per month for their weekly trash and bi-weekly recycling pickup as a result of the proposed increase.
