Fayetteville's Pay As You Throw (PAYT) Residential Trash Program means just that, the more trash you throw out on a weekly basis the more money it will cost you. Each residence has a choice of 3 sizes for their trash cart; 32, 64, and 96 gallon sizes are available. Each size has a different rate assigned to it, for example, the 32 gallon cart is $9.68 per month, the 64 gallon cart is $14.78 per month, and the 96 gallon cart is $20.98 per month. It is important to know that each residence should get the size cart that is designed to handle the weekly volumes of trash from that household. The 32 gallon is for 1 bag of trash or less, the 64 is for up to 2 bags of trash, and the 96 gallon is for up to 3 bags of trash. Overfilling carts is not recommended and will cost $6.40 for each extra bag visible above the rim of the cart. Please make sure the cart lid is closed completely to avoid a $6.40 per each extra bag charge. The PAYT program is highly recommended by the EPA as a means to reduce waste and provide a fairer system for those who reduce and recycle. Anybody can reduce the waste they produce by fully using the recycling program and avoiding wasteful practices. You can make a difference!
Each residence receives 4 virtual stickers each year for extra trash occasions. These virtual stickers are allotted to your water account and are not physical stickers as in years past. All past physical stickers will expire and not be valid for use after December 31st, 2014. Virtual stickers will roll over if unused for a period of 3 years; this is subject to change. Trash bags set at the curb outside of the carts will be collected and a $6.40 charge will be added if the 4 virtual stickers are already accounted for through the water bill.
