Refuse 2014 - 2015 Rates

These charts reflect the monthly rates for refuse collection and removal effective July 1, 2014 (Res No. 66,600-N.S.).

 

Rates for additional weekly scheduled collections in excess of the maximum weekly frequency shown in the monthly rate tables shall be calculated by dividing the rate for the maximum frequency of collections for the size container used (including carts, bins and roll-offs) by that number of collections, then multiplying that amount by the number of additional collections per week. 

 

 

The City of Berkeley no longer provides 10, 13 or 45 gallon containers on new accounts, and  replacements are not available.  No more than two (2) 96 gallon containers will be provided for multi-family accounts for garbase, unless there is inadequate space for a roll off container.  Contact Customer Service for additional information.

*Notice: Refuse is billed at two (2) different rates:  Residential (1-4 units) & Commercial (5+ units & businesses)
