CalMet takes over trash bill

DOWNEY - CalMet has taken over residential trash billing, meaning residents will no longer be billed for trash and recycling services on their city water bill. Effective immediately, CalMet will bill residents on a quarterly basis for those services.

CalMet's first invoice covers April, May and June, and includes an adjustment of approximately 1 percent, which was effective April 1.

A credit may appear on this invoice if residents have already been billed the old rate for April, May or June services on a prior Downey water bill.

Residents will continue to pay the city for any previous balances that may appear on city water bills for trash and recycling services.

CalMet's invoices will include information on services, holiday schedules, and terms and collection procedures for past due accounts.

Invoices are due 20 days from the invoice date. The next invoice from CalMet will be mailed out on Aug. 15.

Payments can be made by check through mail or over the phone with a credit card. Invoices will include information about online automatic bill pay.

For questions or more information, call CalMet at (562) 259-1239.
