As approved by the City Council, effective on August 1, 2019, Waste Connections will take over as the residential waste hauler for the City of Wildwood. Weekly collection of trash, recycling and yard waste will continue, and collection days will not change. The new waste hauler agreement with Waste Connections is for two years, with an option to extend for three additional years.
Rates: With the new agreement, on August 1st residents can expect a reduction in their monthly bill for basic services (trash and recycling) from $17.20/month to $16.05/month. Optional yard waste will remain at $10.30/month. Optional - 95-gallon Cart Rental (for trash) will cost $3.15/month. The current 15% senior discount will be retained.
Recycling: With the change to a new waste hauler, the City Council approved switching our recycling program from dual-stream back to single-stream recycling, and therefore, your new Fiber recycling container will be recovered after pickup the week of July 29th.
Residents can expect a letter from Waste Connections with further information regarding the changeover process.
