HIGHLAND | The Town Council has approved a price break on trash collection fees.

Under a new contract with Republic Services Inc., households are getting two free 95 or 65 gallon plastic containers this week. One is for garbage and the other is for recycling.

Senior citizens will receive the smaller cans, Public Works Director John Bach said.

The old monthly rate was $19.28 per household and $18.28 for seniors, Bach said.

The new monthly fees, for 2014 are $17 for the larger cans and $16 for the smaller ones, Bach said.

He said seniors can request the larger cans if desired — and those with large cans can request the smaller ones.

Bach added that residents who need two cans can request one at an additional fee of $3.74 per month.
