2020 PILOT PROGRAM
Pay As You Throw
For municipalities who charge residents for pick up of municipal solid waste, more commonly known as household trash, based upon the amount thrown away versus paying for trash pick up through taxation, Pay As You Throw is a cost-saving program for both residents and municipalities.
Whether residents are billed per bag or by weight, the less trash residents throw away the less they will pay. This provides an incentive to recycle more and to generate less waste. Think of trash like another household commodity – electricity, water and gas – only pay for what you use and enjoy cost reduction by taking proactive measures to reuse, reduce and recycle.
