The City of Wildwood is pleased to announce that, starting August 1st, 2023, residential solid waste, recycling, and yard waste services will be performed by Republic Services and Gateway Disposal. The City has entered into partnerships with these two highly reputable companies to provide an enhanced and efficient waste management experience for our residents.
The current provider of residential solid waste, recycling, and yard waste services will continue service until July 31st, 2023.
In light of the City's current solid waste service provider announcing its decision to stop service in the City at the end of its contract, the City solicited and received several different proposals. After careful evaluation and review, the Administration and Public Works Committee recommended, and the City Council approved, the selection of Republic Services and Gateway Disposal to split the service area within the City of Wildwood.
The cost for basic services during the first year (8/01/23-7/31/24) will be $31.93 per month for Republic Services and $43.00 per month for Gateway Disposal. Please note that there will be an annual price increase of 3.4% for homes covered by Republic Services and a 2.5% annual increase for homes covered by Gateway Disposal. A 15% Senior Discount will be available through both service providers. For residents receiving the 15% Senior Discount, the cost for basic services during the first year (8/01/23-7/31/24) will be $27.15 per month for Republic Services and $36.55 per month for Gateway Disposal.
The City firmly believes that the partnerships with Republic Services and Gateway Disposal will not only meet but exceed the expectations of our residents. The decision to collaborate with these exceptional waste haulers was driven by the City's commitment to providing residents with the highest level of service, convenience, and sustainability.
The City will continue to update this webpage as more information becomes available. To learn more about the waste hauler transition, please click here.
