HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – The City of Henderson Board of Commissioners approved an ordinance on Friday that would increase residential fees for trash collection.

City of Henderson Public Information Officer Donna B. Stinnett tells Eyewitness News the residential rate for collection and disposal of garbage will increase from $17 to $19.50 per month and will include a $1 per month earmark for recycling services.
