Garbage Rates Effective 04.01.2020

From The City of Southside:




After lengthy consideration the Southside City Council recently took necessary action on the rising cost of garbage collection. Residential garbage collection rates have not increased in the City of Southside since 2009. Due to the rising cost of fuel, equipment, landfill fees, ADEM requirements, labor costs, and a recent contract increase with Advanced Disposal Services, the City reviewed the rates of residential garbage collection and determined it was necessary to adjust the residential garbage collection rates in order to keep rendering quality and timely service to the citizens of Southside


These new rates will be effective April 1st, 2020 and will be reflected on the water bills that are mailed at the end of March and payable in April.


Residential pick up $15.50 per month plus $5.00 per can per month for each additional can.


Large item pickup will remain the same at $40.00-$70.00 depending on the volume picked up.


The City of Southside continually strives to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our citizens. We thank you in advance for your understanding about having to raise the cost of garbage collection.


As a reminder, all garbage-related concerns will be directed to City Hall @
