Waste Management Fuel Charge - May 2023

News Release Date
Back to News

Residents will see a small increase in their Waste Management bill starting in June due to a 4.56% fuel surcharge approved by the Town Board in April to cover rising fuel costs. This surcharge will begin in the month of May. Those interested can learn more on page 89 or the April 2023 Board Packet.

This change was made due to fuel prices increasing by more than 10%. The 4.56% fuel surcharge is based on the 12-month rolling average of diesel prices in the Rocky Mountain region. 

The surcharge will be a fixed percentage for 12 months beginning May 1, 2023 and will be reevaluated annually on or before February 1 each year. 

The fuel surcharge is applied to all services Waste Management provides.  

Those with questions about their Waste Management bill should visit the Waste Management website or call 800-796-9696.
