Residential Trash bill will increase $1.00 per month starting January 1, 2016
The City of Valley Park has a long history of providing top notch sanitation services, taking care of trash, yard waste, recycling and providing for large trash pickup twice per year. In the past 8 years there have been substantial increases in the cost of fuel, tipping fees and volume while there has not been an increase in the fee for service. Unfortunately we have reached a point where we need to make an adjustment to keep the sanitation budget in order. The sanitation fee will be increasing by $3.00 per quarter going from $51.00 to $54.00 Residents can expect the same quality service that they have enjoyed, 2 weekly trash pick-ups, 1 weekly recycling pick-up and 1 weekly yard waste pick-up every week along with a spring and fall big trash pick-ups. This new price will take effect starting the January, February March 2016 billing quarter. If you have any questions please call the Public Works Department at 636-225-5171 ext: 7.
