Section 505.29 | Tax levy for waste and leaf disposal service - service charge.


The board of township trustees may levy, in any year, a sufficient tax within the ten-mill limitation upon all taxable property in a waste disposal district to provide and maintain waste collection, transfer, recycling, and disposal services and to provide for the collection and disposal of tree leaves.

In the alternative, the board of township trustees of any township that has provided or contracted for the collection, transfer, recycling, or disposal of garbage or refuse on behalf of the township or any district may establish, by resolution, equitable charges of rents to be paid to the township for the use and benefit of that service by every person, firm, or corporation whose premises are so served. The charges shall constitute a lien upon the property served and, if not paid when due, shall be collected in the same manner as other township taxes.
