Unable to Place Your Waste Cans at the Curb? Apply Now for Discounted Service Fee

 On July 1, 2018, new higher fees for waste disposal service will begin. Qualifying Piedmonters unable to move their cans to the curb may receive the on-premises pick up fee for the same fee as curbside pick up.  To receive a full year’s disability exemption, a timely application must be made. 

Residents can apply for the discounted fee throughout the year, however discounted fees will not be retroactive. 

Piedmont’s Disability Exemption Program is administered by the City of Piedmont Planning Department.

The City will process the applications upon receipt and notify the contractor promptly once the application has been approved. The franchise agreement states that, “the contractor shall provide on-premise service on the next scheduled collection day, provided that the city has approved requested on-premises service and informed contractor in writing within 2 work days of the collection day. The City policy can be read HERE. 

For additional information or questions regarding the exemption program, contact the Piedmont Planning Department at 420-3050.
