During the Monday, Jan. 22, City Commission meeting, the West Fargo City Commission approved the proposed sanitation rate and schedule changes. 

Rate changes:

A 17% increase to sanitation rates will take effect in 2024, with no per item charge for bulky items. The sanitation rate will increase from $17.50 per month for a 64-gallon cart size for residential collection to $20.48 per month. A new 96-gallon cart size will be available to residents for $23.48 per month. If residents are interested in ordering a 96-gallon cart, contact the Sanitation Division using the online form or by calling 701-515-5400. 

 There will be additional changes to the multi-family, mixed-use and commercial rates. The rate increase will take effect Friday, March 1, 2024. For a full list of the approved sanitation rate changes, and proposed five-year plan, visit the City of West Fargo’s website

Operational changes:

The operational changes approved will move the City of West Fargo from a five-day residential recycling sanitation and recycling collection schedule to a four day a week pick up schedule. The Friday residential collection route will be split to be added to Wednesday and Thursday collection days. Wednesday and Thursday recycling will have updated recycling zones. There will be no changes to the annual Spring Cleanup Week. 

The operational changes regarding the sanitation and recycling collection schedule will take effect Monday, July 1, 2024.

Bulky item collection: 

Bulky item collection will need to be scheduled through the City of West Fargo’s website or by calling the Sanitation Division at 701-515-5400. When scheduled, bulky item pick up does not need to align with the resident’s garbage collection day. There will be no charge for bulky item collection unless it is a previously identified specialty item. Excess bagged residential trash, including items not listed on the approved bulky item pick up list, will not be collected curbside beginning July 1, 2024. 

Please visit the City of West Fargo’s website for a full list of acceptable items and bulky item collection changes. The operational changes regarding the bulky collection will take effect Monday, July 1, 2024.
