Transition of Solid Waste Billing to Annual Assessment

Beginning on October 1, 2016, residential trash services will be billed as a Special Assessment on the annual property tax notice, along with Ad Valorem Taxes and other Special Assessments. Residential Solid Waste fees are currently billed quarterly by Broward County Water and Wastewater Services. With this change, customers may take advantage of a 4% discount if paying their tax bill before November 30. Those who currently pay their property taxes through a mortgage escrow account will see an increase in their monthly mortgage once this year’s payment has been disbursed and their lender has analyzed their escrow balance. Therefore, the last quarterly billing by Broward County will take place in July 2016. All customers currently billed by the City who receive containerized (dumpster) collection service will be transitioned to direct billing by Waste Management. The City’s vacation rebate program will continue, and only property owners who provide proof of payment of property taxes and assessments will be eligible.
