Solid Waste (Trash) Fees

Solid Waste (Trash) Fees

Due to rising solid waste costs, effective January 1st, 2021 any residence with additional barrels leased through Waste Management will incur an additional solid waste fee from the City.

This bill represents half of the solid waste fee of $90 per unit for the new Calendar year.
Billing periods are: January 1st - June 30th and July 1st - December 31st

There are a couple of options available when paying your Trash Bill:

  • You can pay the current amount due within 30 days of the bill date. You will then receive a second half billing in September.

  • Pay for the full calendar year by paying double the amount of the current March Bill. This will avoid receiving a second half bill for the calendar year. Sample: Current bill $45 (Jan-Jun) Pay $90 (Jan-Dec), will not receive a bill in September.

Bills must be paid within 30 days from the issuance of the bill.

Interest on late payments will accrue from the due date at a rate of 8% per annum. Any amounts remaining unpaid after the due date may be placed as a lien on the next tax bill and/or subject to all collection procedures permitted by law.

All past due balances will be assessed a $30 Demand fee.

Payments may be made:

  • Online
  • over the phone (508) 381-5455
  • by mail
  • or in person at City Hall Room 206


At present, this bill will not be paid by your mortgage company.
