Scheduled 10-cent Solid Waste rate increase begins July 1


Surprise sanitation customers will see a change on their city utility statement beginning July 1, 2021, as a rate increase determined by a structured schedule is implemented.

Beginning July 1, 2021, single-family solid waste (trash) customers will pay a monthly base rate of $23.50; an increase of $0.10 per month. 

The rate will increase by $0.10 each fiscal year through FY2024, bringing the rate to $23.70 on July 1, 2023. Residential water and wastewater utility rates will remain unchanged.

The Utility Rate Study, approved in February 2019, created a five-year structured schedule to obtain revenues required to operate utilities and maintain infrastructure while also considering asset replacement and emergency funding needs.

Customers who have pre-arranged or automatic payments with their financial institution are urged to update their accounts to reflect changes to their utility rate.

Information regarding the Utility Rate Study can be found online at
