Payment is due before 5:00 p.m. on the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a holiday or weekend, payment is due by 5:00 p.m. on the first workday following the holiday or weekend. A $15.00 delinquent charge is added to the bill if payment is not made by the due date. A pink slip is mailed and will state the disconnect date. An additional charge of $25.00 will be added to the bill upon disconnection. All charges must be paid in full before utility service can be reconnected.


Water meters are read around the 15th of each month. Utility bills are printed and mailed during the last week of the month. Current monthly utility charges are:

WATER: $14.76 for usage of up to 300 cu. ft., SEWER: $31.42, GARBAGE: $14.88,
WATER IMPROVEMENT: $9.00, SEWER IMPROVEMENT: $7.00, SEWER PUMP FEE: $16.00 (The Sewer Pump fee is only in the Zillah Lakes Development)

UTILITY TAX: 26.3% of Water and 32% of Sewer and Garbage

The sewer charge is a flat rate for residential customers. Commercial customers pay a base rate plus an additional amount based on water usage. You will be delivered a 64 gallon container within five (5) working days of moving into your residence. Extra garbage cans can be added for an additional charge per can per month. Extra garbage is billed at $2.94 per item over the 64 gallon minimum. Garbage pickup can be early in the morning so we recommend that the cans be placed out the night before pick-up. Certain sections of town have Thursday pick-up while others are scheduled for Monday. Contact City Hall to find out which day your address is scheduled. A 96 Gallon Yard Waste Containers are available for a one time $22.02 tote delivery fee and then $9.35 per month. If you are a low-income senior over the age of 65 or low-income disabled, you may qualify for a 25% discount on the utility tax.  Garbage pick-up will be delayed one day on the following Holidays: Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Years Day.

You may have noticed that the recycle/donation bins are no longer by the grocery store on First Avenue.  They have been moved to the empty lot behind the Cherry Patch on Cheyne Road.  If you use the bins, please remember to put all applicable items inside the bins.  Don’t leave boxes, bags or items on the ground or outside of the bins.  If one of the bins is full, there are also bins located at the Zillah Middle School.  Thank you for your cooperation.
