Solid Waste Collection Department

The Solid Waste Collection Department provides service to the residents and select businesses in town. The service provides weekly solid waste collection, weekly curbside recycling service and monthly bulk item collection.

September 26th, 2011

The West Point Town Council unanimously approved the adoption of Ordinance No. 9-11, which established standards and procedures intended to protect the residents’ health and welfare while establishing fees aimed to support the collection and disposal of solid waste.

Fees

The fees established are intended to be reasonable and equitable fees to cover the cost of continuing to provide a comprehensive system for collecting, transporting, processing and disposing of solid waste. This rate currently ONLY addresses the weekly solid waste collection service.

  • $10.00 per month, per container for regular household trash pickup
  • $13.50 per month, per container for commercial customers.
    This charge will be seen on your bi-monthly water utility bill.

Why is this mandatory?

By requiring a community wide, residential solid waste service for every residential property, we will ensure future stability of the refuse collection service while significantly reducing potential illegal dumping.
