Garbage & Environmental Fees
Your monthly water bills reflect a fee for residential garbage and recycling collection. This fee is assessed by the Department of Environmental Management. The monthly rate includes once-a-week garbage and recyclables pick up in wheeled carts, once-a-week collection of yard trimmings in paper yard bags or tied bundles, once-a-week collection of up to 10 cubic yards of brush and once-a-month collection of up to 10 cubic yards of bulky items per household. All customers receive a 64-gallon recycling cart. The monthly garbage cart fee is based on selected cart size.
