As of May 1, the BPU Solid Waste residential rate will be $20 per unit each month. Those customers who participate in the Residential Recycling Credit Program (RRCP) - by recycling using their orange recycling bins with radio frequency identification (rfid) tags - will receive a $10 credit on the monthly bill. In effect, customers who participate in the program will receive a $10 credit on their $20 fee, making their rate only $10 each month.
Landlords who pay Solid Waste charges for tenants, in multiple-unit housing, continue to pay $12.10 per residential unit.
A reduced rate for multiple-unit housing is available if the landlord wishes to pay sanitation charges for all units on one account.
