Billing Information

The City of Kirkland will send you a bill for the prior two months of garbage service. If you have water or sewer through the City, these charges will also appear on this same bill. Bills are due 30 days from the billing date. Late payments have a 10% penalty added to the balance. Any rental charges for containers will be billed separately by Waste Management.

Converting a per occurrence rate to a monthly charge

If you have subscribed to a single occurrence service as part of your garbage service, for the purposes of billing the conversion of the weekly fee to a monthly charge is calculated by multiplying the per-occurrence rate by 4.333 (weeks per month).
