Solid Waste fees are calculated on an annual basis. Bills are mailed in December for the following calendar year. Fees may be paid monthly, quarterly or yearly. Monthly statements are not mailed for residential accounts. Payment books are available upon request as reminders. Automatic bank deductions can be set up and credit and debit card payments are accepted with a 3% service fee. Payments are due by the 15th of the month. Any account 30 days delinquent is subject to a monthly late fee of $1.00. Further collection actions may be taken on extreme delinquencies. Please make checks payable to Latah County Solid Waste.
Anything exceeding your service level must be tagged. You may be billed a $5.00 fee for any extra waste not tagged. Tags are available at the Solid Waste office or by mail with a pre-stamped self-addressed envelope for $1.50. Tags sold at grocery stores are for city of Moscow residents only.
If a home is vacant, non-livable, or used for storage, or as a cabin a solid waste exemptions may be available. Applications may be obtained from the Latah County Solid Waste Office, or downloaded from the link below. An exemption must be applied for and approved in order to stop billing.
