[ARCHIVED] Bismarck Moves Forward with Residential Curbside Recycling Fee

The City of Bismarck announced today that they’ve received a response from Waste Management with the cost of the fee to provide residential single sort curbside recycling services. Waste Management is the contracted vendor selected to provide the service to Bismarck residents.

“We are pleased that Waste Management responded within the timeline set forth at the March 26, City Commission meeting and we’re happy that we can now move forward with notifying residents of the residential curbside recycling fee of $3.81 per month for the first year of service,” said Commissioner Mike Seminary.

Bismarck property owners will receive an insert in their April water bill notifying them of the $3.81 residential curbside recycling fee per month, which will go into effect late this fall. The water bill insert will also provide residents with the one-time option to opt-out of the residential curbside recycling service for financial hardship or space restrictions. Single-sort, 96 gallon recycling containers will be issued to Bismarck residents who have not opted out when the program goes into effect.
