Trash Collection Getting More Costly in Marfa

MARFA - Garbage collection will soon cost Marfa residents a lot more.

The city is currently negotiating a new four year contract for residential and commercial trash collection.

During the past four years, gas prices have skyrocketed. That means the cost of trash pick up could increase some 30 percent.

Crews have to haul trash from Marfa to a landfill in Presidio, which is a 120 mile round trip.      The new rates could take effect in September.
