The South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency will consider a slight transportation fee increase in its board meeting Wednesday. Agency Director Sarah Bixby says the fee would help cover rising fuel, insurance and other operations costs. The fee is currently $38 per ton and would raise to $40 per ton under the new rules. If adopted, the new fee structure will take effect on July 1st.
