About the Solid Waste Management Fee

In 2017, the City Council approved the implementation of a solid waste management fee also known as the "Annual Garbage Collection Fee" for the City of Troy. This annual service fee helps the City improve solid waste collection services through more effective management of costs and implementation of environmental-friendly initiatives like composting and expanded single-stream recycling. The City developed an updated resource management and recycling program to reduce the volume of solid waste collected annually by the City.

For questions regarding the City's Solid Waste Management Program, please contact the Office of General Services at 518-279-7158.
