County Introduces a Solid Waste Utility

Until recently, solid waste fees were collected through municipal taxation. Under the old system, people paid vastly different amounts for solid waste based on their home’s assessment. It also meant that those unable to use the service (vacant, linear and commercial) still had to pay.The new solid waste utility has been created to address these concerns.

As of 2016, the municipal taxation component for solid waste has been eliminated. The utility will bill residential households $215.00 annually. The utility bills will be mailed in September each year. Only those eligible to use the transfer station will receive a bill. All transfer station users will be billed the same cost per household. Residential households can expect to pay slightly more for the utility than their tax savings due to elimination of the subsidy previously provided to those unable to use the service. Not all homes will see the same net change in rates due to the change from taxation to the new utility structure.

Some Important Points about the Utility

• Only residential dwellings will be charged the solid waste utility fee
• This is a change in billing (taxation to utility) not collection (transfer stations or waste)
• The County has always charged for solid waste (included in the property tax)
