New Solid Waste Fees for 2024

The Borough of Stroudsburg is raising Solid Waste Fees in 2024.  First Quarter bills have been mailed and they should be arriving in the next several days.  The new fees are:

Monthly Fee                $39.00
Quarterly Fee              $117.00
Annual Fee                  $460.00

Fees were increased due to two factors.  Firstly, fees increased in the second year of our contract with Casella.  Secondly, the majority of the increase is due to more accurately reflecting in bills the actual personnel and administrative costs required to administer this program.  This is a one-time adjustment, and future rate increases will not have this added component.

We thank residents for their continued support of this important program!
