Solid Waste Rate Increase for 2015
As of January 1, 2015, the residential garbage fee will increase to $75.75 plus tax - or $82.95 - per quarter. In order to receive a 10% discount, customers may make an annual payment of $298.61 by March 31.
Our provider, Get Rid Of It, has increased its fee to Chicot County, therefore we are required to pass the increase on to solid waste customers. In addition, if you own a tenant house or rental property, you are required to register your tenant or renter in the Chicot County Judge's office. It will be your responsibility to notify the County Judge's office in the event the house is vacated, otherwise charges will continue to accrue.
These changes were approved in December, 2014, by Ordinance 2014-09. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Solid Waste office at 870-265-8071.
