News & Updates

Effective Oct. 1, residential solid waste collection fees will increase from $23.62 to $24.87 per month as part of an ordinance approved by city commissioners on June 27 to tie future annual rate adjustments to the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Customers (CPI-U). The move comes as Volusia County Landfill disposal fees are set to increase for the first time in 20 years on Nov. 15 while the city has also seen significant cost increases over the past several years due to annexations, new construction, and an overall increase in the amount of solid waste being generated per household.
