Garbage Rates – Effective January 1, 2022

  • Mobile Home Courts: $17.25 per month per unit.
  • Multi-Residential: $15.20 per month per unit.
  • Residential:
    • $14.25 per month (35 Gallon Cart)
    • $16.50 per month (65 Gallon Cart)
    • $19.60 per month (95 Gallon Cart)

Reasons for not being picked-up:

  • Not out in time.
  • Wrong day for pick-up
  • Too close to something, preventing automated truck from reaching it.
  • Blocked (could’ve had something or someone blocking it at time of pick-up).
  • Overfilled or lid open.
    • This is the leading cause of litter and storm-water pollution in the county. If cans are overfilled to the point the lid can’t be closed, a gust of wind could blow the trash out and into the streets, causing pollution or littering. The automated garbage trucks are designed to lift cans with lids that stay closed until the moment they’re dumped into the truck. A can with an open lid could also spill trash out when being collected or in the wind be dumped over. Another major problem is that an open can attracts animals, such as raccoons, rats, and even stray dogs and cats.
