The city reduces the cost of solid waste pick up for customers who are over 65 or disabled.
To obtain the reduced solid waste rate, the city requires a copy of the requestor's drivers license or other valid identification as age verification. Residents who receive a disability exemption for property tax purposes can receive the reduced rate for solid waste service with appropriate documentation. If you receive a disability exemption for property tax purposes, please contact the Finance Department to have your account updated.
The 2016 budget included a 30% increase on all solid waste rates, increasing the over 65 and disabled rates to $15.95 per month ($17.27 with tax) and the regular rates to $31.40 per month ($33.99 with tax). Twenty percent (20%) of the increase is due to increased cost of existing services and ten percent (10%) is due to the addition of green waste recycling.
