The Village of Burton has teamed up with Waste Management to offer Burton Village residents a Single Hauler Trash Program that will become effective April 1, 2019. All residents will automatically be enrolled in the standard service level of a 96-gallon trash cart and a 64-gallon recycle cart at a rate of $16.50 per month. To choose a different service level, be sure to return the postcard you'll be receiving from Waste Management in the coming days. A senior rate is available. Also available is "low volume bag service." Recycling will take place every two weeks. All standard service level customers will get a recycle tote; bag customers have the option of adding recycling service at a rate of $4.50/month.

Exciting news, Village Residents! Tired of misplacing your utility bill? Would you like your utility bill emailed to you instead? Maybe you'd like to log in and view your current (or past) bills, online. Soon you will be able to view and/or print your utility bills online; set up ACH recurring payments; pay be e-check; and/or pay over the phone! We will also be taking credit card payments online, or in person (when paying online using a credit card or e-check, there are nominal fees charged by our third party processor). More info to follow!

Please note:  The Board of Public Affairs recently updated the Rules and Regulations to state that any water and sewer bill not paid by the due date (a delinquent account) AND with a balance of $500 or greater will have services shut off (please note: the bill must be LATE AND OVER $500). Payment plans are available to anyone who is having trouble paying their water/sewer bill. If you are making regularly scheduled payments on a payment plan, your account is not delinquent.

Sign up forms will be included in the August/September newsletter as well as in the August water bills. Forms will also be available in the Village Office soon. Plans are for the new system to be live on October 2, 2017.

You can apply on-line by downloading the Burton Alert Sign Up Form, complete it, and press the "Submit" button on the form.
