Services (Water, Garbage / Recycling / Yard Waste)

The City of Huron's Finance Department processes billing for water,  residential garbage service, and storm water management. These services are combined on one bill (on yellow paper) and includes the following charges:

  • Water Billing:  Flat rate availability charge (most accounts are $49.63/qtr.) plus $2.60 per 100 cubic feet of water used
  • The City, through a contracted service with Republic Services , provides weekly refuse pickup serivce including  curbside recycling , and year round yard waste pickup for residential customers.  Garbage, Recycling, Yard Waste fee:  $65/quarter.

Storm Water Management Fee

In order to comply with federal storm water regulations, the City of Huron has adopted a storm water management fee. This revenue source will provide sufficient funding for managing, maintaining, and improving the city’s storm water infrastructure. This includes efforts such as reviewing storm water practices on commercial development, street sweeping and providing a robust yard waste program, repairing catch basins and storm lines, and installing new storm water infrastructure. The new storm water management fee is being used to help offset the management and infrastructure costs.

  • Residential Single-family and Duplexes: $5 per quarter
  • Multi-family Residential: $7 per quarter
  • Commercial Properties: $10 per quarter

Residents are reminded that they need to assist in keeping the streets clean. City Ordinances state that “No person shall sweep, shovel or pile or cause to be swept, shoveled or piled, any snow, ice, leaves, branches, twigs, brush, grass or other waste upon any of the streets, avenues, alleys, sidewalks or other public ways of the City." These items can get into storm systems and cause significant issues.
