Trash Removal Rates

Trash blocking drainage - a service fee of $50.00 - $200.00 will be charged to the owner of the property when it becomes necessary to clear a ditch of trash and/or debris during, before, and/or after a rainstorm to prevent possible flooding. The fee shall be based upon the amount of work performed by the City. The City shall document the work and add the service fee on the customer's next bill; the next month bill will be the customer's notice.

Miscellaneous trash and/or debris, defined as green waste and/or any other bulky items not able to be placed into the standard City garbage container, from empty (undeveloped or vacant) property must be hauled off by the owner or developer at their expense. Violations of said policy will be forwarded to the City's Code Enforcement Department for compliance. The City shall not reconnect services until said violation has been resolved by the Code Enforcement Officer and/or Municipal Court.

The City will provide collection of trash to residential and commercial customers receiving garbage service twice per month. The amount of trash removed shall be limited to four (4) cubic yards per collection. Trash piles greater than the prescribed 4 cubic yards must be removed from the property within ten (10) calendar days or violations may be forwarded to the City's Code Enforcement Department for compliance. If the City's Code Enforcement Officer tags the pile in violation, the City solid waste service shall not pickup that trash. The CITY shall not provide this service to vacant properties or those properties without an active account. Green waste and trash will not be removed if it is co-mingled.

Should an owner of property or customer within the City request the removal of trash, the City may do so at a cost equivalent to the actual costs of personnel, equipment, and disposal fees but . no less than $20.00 per cubic yard per collection for quantities greater than four cubic yards. Payment must be made to the City prior to the trash being collected. The amount of trash to be collected shall not exceed four (4) cubic yards at any one time. Such service shall be provided at the discretion of the City dependent upon such factors including, but not limited to, existing work load, and scheduling. This provision shall not apply to the accumulation of trash due to work performed by contractors and/or individuals/companies hired by the property owners. The placement of the trash in quantities greater than four cubic yards shall constitute the owner or customer's request for said service and acceptance of prescribed fees.
