Ozark, Mo. -- Ozark residents who are Republic Services customers will notice a monthly rate increase starting February 1, 2024.
If you're a Republic Services customer, your current monthly trash fee of $12.85, which has been in effect since 2019, will increase to $13.90. Your current monthly recycling fee of $2.25 will increase to $5.18.
Republic Services determines this fee change to reflect the cost of collection services and inflation adjustments. Please note that the City of Ozark does not provide trash collection services, though it provides billing services for Republic Services customers so that citizens may receive a lower rate and have the convenience of paying one bill for all your utilities.
If you have any questions about your trash collection service, contact Republic Services at 800.627.1717 or check out their website.
The new rates are approved through December 31, 2024. Republic Services reserves the right to increase its monthly service fee by 5% at the end of the year. Republic Services is responsible for maintaining all carts and shall exchange any damaged carts for no extra charge for maintenance. Recycling and trash service shall be on the same day of the week when service is provided.
The City of Ozark has a non-exclusive contract to provide these billing services, meaning residents can contract with any company they choose for their trash collection.
