Backup Sewer Treatment Operator
Assistant Superintendent of Streets & Drainage
2021 Revised Collection Dates due to Holidays.
Please refrain from disposing products labeled as "flushable" down the toilet. These products include "flushable wipes". Packaging must include the term "biodegradable" for it to qualify as a flushable product. Other products cause frequent additional maintenance on our sewer system.
ALL GARBAGE must be bagged and tagged with a Village of Jordan pink garbage sticker. Clear bags are preferable. Garbage placed within cans/containers must also be bagged and tagged. Residents are allowed to use bags up to 30 gallons and cannot exceed 30 pounds. One sticker must be securely attached to each bag, regardless of bag size. We recommend wrapping the sticker around the bag handles to avoid stickers from being removed or falling off during the colder months.
GARBAGE STICKERS can be purchased for $2.00 each from the village office M-F, 8:30 am – 4:30pm, OR from the Family Dollar Store during their normal business hours and from TOPS Markets in Elbridge during their normal hours.
ALL RECYCLABLES should be placed loose in blue bins provided by OCRRA. Recyclables should NOT be placed in plastic bags because if in plastic bags they will end up directly in the trash. Blue bins may be obtained from the village office free of charge, as well as a complete list of items OCRRA accepts for recycling. There is no additional charge for recycling pick up. For more information on OCRRA’s recycling program, please visit “https://ocrra.org/services/recycle/.”
After extensive deliberation and many calculations, the Board of Trustees resolved to raise water and sewer rates, effective in July 2020. Sewer rates have not increased since 2007 and water rates since 2015. The ever-increasing cost of operation has caused greater deficits over the past couple years that the funds cannot sustain at the current rates. The combined base increase for village residents will be $28.00 per quarter ($9.33 per month) per unit.
NEW BASE RATES ARE: Village Sewer base rate $100.00 plus if over 5,000 gallons $0.55 per 100 gallons Village Water base rate $ 30.00 plus if over 5,000 gallons $0.18 per 100 gallons Outside Water base rate $ 47.00 plus if over 5,000 gallons $0.35 per 100 gallons .
LT2 rates will not be affected and remains at $6.50 per quarter with all usage at $0.04 per hundred gallons.
