Sewer Usage Rates and Billing Cycle

Sewer usage is based on the amount of water used by a parcel as measured by the Easton Suburban Water Authority (ESWA).  

The City of Easton bills for sewer usage on a monthly basis based on actual meter readings obtained from ESWA. 

Monthly minimum charges are based on the size of the meter and type of service provided, as outlined under Ordinance 285-20 Sewers, Chapter 475 here; base rates are shown below:

  • Resident usage is billed at $6.90 / unit
  • Commercial usage is billed at $7.10 / unit
  • Institutional usage is billed at $7.40 / unit

 

Garbage Collection Rates and Billing Cycle

Garbage collection rates are based on the number of residential units on a parcel.

Each residential unit is billed at a rate of $33/month. All user fees for garbage collection are added to the property owner's monthly utility bill.


ALERT: Please pay close attention to the website you use for paying city sewer, water, and real estate bills. The two authorized vendors are Diversified Bill Pay and City Hall Systems.

Third party sites like doxo.com are NOT affiliated The City of Easton or Easton Suburban Water Authority. Rather than going to the official City web site to pay their bill, some residents are doing Google searches for phases like "pay my Easton utility bill" and are mistakenly being taken to unaffiliated, third party platforms like Doxo.

All these third party platforms do is take your payment, charge you a high user fee, and then issue a check to the city on your behalf. Your payment is not considered as being made until the City receives the check in the mail, which often takes several days, resulting in a late fee for the resident if they processed the payment thru doxo on the day it was due. This is why it's important to always pay online through the official city vendor's web site.
