Uncollectible Accounts Fee

Overview


$0.91 per month for residents using barrels
$0.89 per month for residents using bins

The City has a contract obligation to pay Athens Services, the City of Azusa's waste hauler, all amounts billed to customers by Azusa Light & Water for trash services rendered. When some customers don't pay their bills, the uncollectible charges turn into "losses" that need to be made up in order to continue services to our community. Unfortunately, everyone has to bear the cost of customers that don't pay. The Uncollectible Accounts charge is imposed to make up for these losses, and are paid to Athens Services.
