Solid Waste Billing

SOLID WASTE BILLING EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2019

Beginning July 1, 2019 residents no longer receive bi-monthly bills for solid waste services. The annual amount for the solid waste fees is included on the residential property tax bill starting late 2019. This change was implemented in order to improve the efficiency and equity of solid waste billing and provide a more convenient method of payment for citizens.

Residents with a credit balance on July 1, 2019 will be sent a form they can use to request a refund.

The amount of the fee applied to each property will be determined by the number of dwelling units (e.g. a property with a duplex unit will be billed twice the base fee). Carts in addition to the standard (1) garbage cart and (1) recycling cart will still be available, but will be billed separately.

Make note of this upcoming change if you have set automatic payments through your online banking, if you live on a fixed income, or if you lease residential property in the Town limits.

SOLID WASTE BILLING POLICY

The policy staff use when applying the solid waste fee to property tax bills is:

  • Fee applies to all residential units, regardless of type of construction
  • Fee applies to all habitable units, whether occupied or unoccupied
  • Amount of the fee is based on the number of dwelling units on each parcel
  • Parcels excluded from the fee:
    • Multi-family developments with dumpster service
    • Homes condemned or otherwise uninhabitable
