Residents will pay 4.1 percent higher garbage rates - or about 80 cents more per household, effective July 1.

The City Council last month unanimously approved the increase for Amador Valley Industries, which holds a 10-year franchise through 2020 to collect trash within the city.

The increase boosts the basic residential rate from $19.51 to $20.31 per month.

Despite the increase, Dublin's trash rates are lower than rates in Pleasanton and San Ramon.
