It seems that the increased garbage and recycling costs in store for Hilton Head Island residents deserves future coverage by the newspaper.
Perhaps my numbers should be checked by your staff. I called our contract service, Republic, to continue our service with them, and was advised of the new charges starting April 1. It's about $155 per quarter vs. the $55 we are now paying under the existing contract with the town.
Am I correct in assuming that this amounts to a $400 per year increase for everyone who was a Republic customer? If true, is the town management aware of what they have done to us?
