The Owenton City Council recently approved a one-year contract with Republic Services Inc. for the collection of household and dumpster garbage with recycling.  
The cost is $12 per month per household and residents will be billed.
Recycling boxes will be located around Owenton for commercial and residential drop off.
Commercial pricing depends on the size of the dumpster and how many times a week it is to be picked up.
The city of Owenton had a previous contract with Republic Services Inc., which had expired.
Republic Services was still picking up the garbage, but the service could have been bid out at any time.
