Why has my garbage bill gone up?

On March 1, 2022, the Town’s solid waste and recycling collection rates were adjusted to reflect new residential rates from Waste Management.

Residents will see the increase reflected in their March utility bill statement. March bills will be prorated with the number of days in the billing cycle from the previous February bill date through February 28 at the previous rate and from March 1 to the current date in March billed at the new rate. The April bill will reflect a full month of the increased rate. Please call 561-741-2467 with any questions you may have.
