Garbage Collection Fees
Effective January 1, 2016, t
he City of Chicago implemented a
garbage hauling fee
. Residents who receive garbage collection services provided by the Department of
Streets and Sanitation are being charged a garbage service fee of $9.50 per month per unit. This will appear as a line item on the property water bill. If you see that the description of your address is not properly described, you will be given a link to certify the description of your property.
The garbage fee billing cycle aligns with your current water and sewer billing schedule, and the unified utility bill allows you to receive one bill and make one payment for each billing cycle, eliminating multiple payments.
The first unified utility bill
for non-metered accounts will be sent out in April and contain charges for water and sewer services from the past six months and garbage collection from January through April of 2016.
for adjusted budget planning of property owners,
Chicago is waiving all late payment penalties for 2016 for the garbage fee portion of your utility bill.
All water and sewerage fees will continue to be adjusted for late payment.
A 50% discount rate ($4.75 per month per unit) is available to qualifying seniors enrolled in the Cook County Assessor's Senior Freeze Exemption program. If you receive this exemption, the discount will be applied to the garbage fee on your utility bill automatically. Please visit the
Cook County Assessor's
website for more details about the pr
ogram and to see if you qualify.
