Sanitation Fee for 2019


On July 9, 2018, the City of Avondale Estates Board of Mayor and Commissioners voted to increase the sanitation rates by $71 per household, per year. This increase was determined to match the current cost of operating the City’s sanitation collection schedule. Residents and businesses are billed yearly for this expense along with property tax.

Sanitation services within the City of Avondale Estates are operated under an enterprise fund that includes activities such as twice-weekly garbage collection, as well as yard waste, debris, and loose leaf collection, and recycling. As an enterprise fund, the sanitation service within the City of Avondale Estates is designed to be self-supporting. Fees are adjusted to ensure that services are able to be performed without dipping into other accounts to remain operational.

The 2019 sanitation rates will be:

  • Residential -- per house, apartment, condominium, or other
  • housing unit                                                                                 521.00
  • Commercial -- Heavy-usage, per business unit                          735.00
  • Commercial -- Normal-us­age, per business unit                         625.00
  • Commercial -- Light-usage, per business unit                             521.00
