Please be advised that the City trash fee remains in effect until further notice. To continue your municipal trash pickup service, please pay all charges as billed.
The City of Springfield is always considering new ideas for a waste reduction action plan. No matter what solid waste collection and disposal system the City decides to implement, it is imperative that we follow the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Conserving scarce natural resources through recycling not only promotes a healthy environment, but reduction in the consumption and demand for energy resources keeps energy prices more affordable. As we continue to research plans that would be fair for all residents, financially beneficial to the city and environmentally conscious, the $90 per barrel trash fee will remain in effect. Residents must pay the charge to continue receiving trash removal services.
