Trash Rates to Remain the Same in 2019

The City of Clayton is excited to announce city residents will see no increase in their quarterly trash bill this year. After soliciting and reviewing bids from different interested companies, the City of Clayton will enter into a new five-year contract with our current provider, Republic Services, on May 1, 2019.  Residents will experience no disruption in services and no rate increases through May 30, 2020 and then a modest 3% increase per year for the life of the agreement. There are a few minor route changes anticipated but those changes will be communicated in the near future.
