Do I have to pay the trash fee if I live in a condominium or mobile home?

For certain condominium associations, the City collects the trash fee from owners, using those funds to pay a private waste disposal company to collect and dispose of trash from dumpsters.  These condominium owners, therefore, are not eligible to opt-out of the trash fee. 

If you live in a mobile home park, the real estate bill is mailed to the park management company.  The trash fee bill for all participating mobile homes will also be sent to park management companies.  We have advised the park management companies of the participation rules and discount application procedures.  Specifically, the management company can apply for the resident discount in a bulk application, listing all resident names, addresses and enclosing supporting documentation.
