If you're still struggling, consider requesting backyard service from Waste Management - drivers will collect your cart from your backyard or other designated location, empty it and return it. Effective April 1, 2016, the 30-day rate for that service is $26.33. Those eligible may apply for the senior citizen/disabled rate of $16.73. Contact our Utility Billing Division for more information, 269-966-3366.
Residents who currently pay for and use backyard service automatically will have the new recycling cart added to that service.
DO NOT include food waste, plastic bags and film, Styrofoam cups and containers, or needles.
Trash cart - 96 gallons$3.25* per month
Yard waste cart - 96 gallons$3.75* per month
This cart rental bill would come directly from Waste Management, separate from your city utility bill. Both are billed semi-annually and a six-month minimum rental is required.
If you want to purchase your own carts, they can be a *maximum* of 32 gallons each. For trash carts, you can place multiple carts at the curb, but each can only be up to 32 gallons in size. For yard waste, it must be properly marked for yard waste only.
*These rates are for new cart rental customers and are subject to increase. The average rental rate for a trash cart is $4.86 and for a yard waste cart is $5.27.
*You must store your trash/recycling/yard waste containers behind the front of your home when they aren't at the curb for pickup.
*Your trash/recycling/yard waste containers can sit at the curb starting at 1 p.m. the day before your designated pickup day, and must be pulled back by 9 a.m. the day after your designated pickup day.
