Frequently Asked Questions
Homeowners who are already opted-in to the service will not need to opt-in again. However, PWC approved their FY24 budget on April 25, 2023, which included the first increase to Solid Waste Management fees since 1998. In addition to an increase to all residents from $70 to $75 per year (fee is rolled into property taxes), there is now for the first time a landfill tipping fee charged to ALL trash haulers at rate of $40 per ton (previously free) beginning January 1, 2024. If you paid for your trash service in full, please note that to compensate for the price change, starting January 1, 2024, $5.00 per month will be charged to each opted-in account until the end of the fiscal year (April 30, 2024). Additionally, any homeowners who have automated monthly payments set up through their bank or ClickPay will need to adjust the payment amount to $20.95/month starting in January 2024.
Homeowners who are not part of a sub-association, will be billed directly through the MPOA. This service fee will be added to their account as a separate line item for trash. There will NOT be an invoice or coupon book sent for trash services, though the owner will receive a confirmation letter outlining their trash services payment obligation prior to the start of the new fiscal year.
Payments are due on the first (1st) of the month each month, however owners have the option to pay the year in full, quarterly, etc. Payments can be made at the same time and using the same payment method as assessments, via online through ClickPay, mail, or at the MPOA office. Owners who pay their assessments online via ClickPay and want to include trash payments, MUST ensure their autopay configuration is set up to do so (this is not handled by the MPOA). ClickPay configurations include four (4) auto pay options, two (2) of these options will NOT automatically update to include your trash payment.
