Solid Waste Department


As part of Scott County’s improved residential solid waste collection program, trash cans are being delivered to residents. If you have not received a trash can at this time, please contact our office so we can have you included in supplemental distribution rounds. The use of these trash cans will be required for continued solid waste collection going forward.

Effective January 1, 2022, solid waste collection fees will be $180 per year, billed quarterly at a rate of $45. If you pre-paid for a full year, you will not be charged until July of 2022.
