City Council approves moving forward with plan for water bill adjustments

We understand many are concerned with how last week's winter storm might have affected water bills. At the Thursday, February 25 City Council Meeting, City Council approved staff to move forward with the following:
  • Immediately suspend all late fees and service disconnections for non-payment until May 12
  • Calculate the new sewer rate using last winter's sewer average, instead of this winter's average.
  • Allow for City to provide for a 100% leak adjustment, instead of the normal allowed 50% adjustment
  • You must submit an application to be considered for an adjustment (Click here for PDF)
  • Waive normal $25 plumbing permit fee for 30 days
  • Everyone is back on their regular schedule for trash
  • Trash pickup includes your green cart and seven (7) additional bulk trash items

Recycling begins next week (the week of March 1) for Week A residents, Week B residents begin week of March 8.
  • Don't know if you are Week A or Week B for recycling? See an alphabetical list by street here
  • Please do not put out your blue recycling cart on the curb until your recycling week
  • If you prefer to have your recycling picked up as trash in the meantime, you may bag it and place it next to your trash cart as one of your seven (7) bulk trash items
  • If your recycling cannot wait, here are drop-off locations:
  • Williamson County residents: The Williamson County Recycling Center (in Hutto will accept Wilco residents’ recycling during all business hours)
  • Travis County residents: The City of Austin’s Recycle and Reuse Drop-off Center (serves all residents of Travis County, at this time, they are doing contactless pickup only)
We encourage you to check these centers for specifics on fees, hours, what is allowed and any other specifications.
