DOWNERS GROVE – Trash will soon cost a little more in Downers Grove.

Beginning Tuesday, the price of garbage stickers in Downers Grove will go from $3.52 to $3.70. The price of carts also increases this week.

The annual increases are part of the contract with the village's waste management company, Republic Services.

There will be no change in the color or appearance of the stickers, and stickers purchased before Tuesday will still be accepted.

Carts, meanwhile, are rented from Republic on a quarterly basis. The monthly price will go from $15.70 to $16.50 for a 35-gallon cart; from $18.20 to $18.97 for a 65-gallon cart; and from $23.95 to $24.92 for a 95-gallon cart.
