City of Sylacauga accepting applications for garbage fee exemptions or reductions


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The City of Sylacauga has issued a reminder that some residents may be exempt from paying garbage collection fees or eligible for a fee reduction based on the following criteria:

Any person, being the head of a household, in whose name the utility meter is listed or registered, who shall state in writing under oath that he or she is totally physically disabled to work and that the total combined monthly income of all individuals living in said household is derived from Social Security Benefits, Supplemental Security Income, or a combination of the two, shall be exempt from payment of garbage collection fees.

Note: These exemptions apply only to household garbage collection fees and normal residential trash, refuse, yard and other waste collection fees, but do not apply to collection charges for additional loads or any other disposal fees/charges imposed herein.

Individuals meeting one or both of requirements must complete a new application each year. During September and October, the City Clerk’s office will accept both new and renewal applications from qualifying individuals. Proof of income (bank statement) and copy of the utility bill are required. Anyone with questions may call 256-401-2401.
