Exemptions

All single family homes and duplexes are required to participate in organized collection with the hauler assigned to their area. The City Council has permitted a few exemptions as follows:

  1. Residents who own a business or a rental property that is located within 25 miles of the City of Little Canada - The property must have refuse collection that the Little Canada resident is paying for and using for his/her own residential refuse. The rental property must have at a minimum a two (2) yard container for disposal service. A resident shall apply for this exemption at the Little Canada City Center. The resident will be required to show proof of property/business ownership and payment of disposal every two years. The resident will still be required to enroll in recycling and bulky item pickup services at contracted charges.
  2. Residents who own a business, but lease the business space - In this case, the resident must provide the City with written permission from the property owner that they are allowed to dispose of their residential refuse at that location or provide evidence that they are paying for refuse service directly with a refuse hauler. A resident shall apply for this exemption at the Little Canada City Center. The resident will be required to show proof of property/business ownership and payment of disposal every two years. The resident will still be required to enroll in recycling and bulky item pickup services at contracted charges.
  3. Residents who will be out of town on vacation a minimum of one month - Residents shall call the City directly to apply for this temporary exemption. The City of Little Canada reserves the right to verify absence through verification of water readings at any time during the absence. If evidence shows water usage, the City will negate the temporary exemption.

Billing

All residents are billed for organized refuse collection by the City of Little Canada. Individuals who fail or refuse to make payment will have their monthly hauling charge assessed against their property and made payable as part of their annual taxes with the addition of late fees and administrative charges.
