Dear Citizens,

The City has renewed the trash contract with R&W Container for the next two years starting January 1, 2024. R&W Container has seen ever-increasing costs for disposal that have affected the cost of providing service to you. The new rates will be effective on your January 1, 2024, water/sewer/trash bill.

The new residential trash service rates are as follows:

Weekly Pickup Residential Service                   $18.00 per month

2 YD. Dumpster                                               $100.00 per month

4 YD. Dumpster                                               $135.00 per month

Unfortunately, there will no longer be a lower rate for senior citizens. Trash day will remain on Thursdays with an 8-bag per household per week limit.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact City Hall at 816-675-2239.
