The City of Elkton operates a water distribution system and sewer treatment facility. The monthly utility bill consists of a charge for water usage, sewer usage, and solid waste collection. The City contracts with Waste Management for residential garbage collection.
Utility bills are typically mailed on the 23rd of each month and are due on the 7th of the following month. If the bill remains unpaid after the 7th, a 10% penalty will be charged to the bill. If the bill remains unpaid by 9:30 AM on the 16th of the month, a $50 service charge will be added to the bill and the utility service will be disconnected.
All customers are required to pay a deposit to establish utility service. The deposit is $175.00 for a renter and $100.00 for a property owner. The city reserves the right to require a copy of the rental agreement to establish a customer is a renter and not the property owner. There is also a nonrefundable service charge of $25.00 that is due upon establishing service.
While the city operates and maintains a water distribution system, we purchase treated water from the Logan-Todd Regional Water Commission. Logan-Todd receives its water from the Cumberland River near Clarksville, Tennessee. The plant has the capacity to produce 20 million gallons per day of treated water. It is projected that will meet the needs of this area for the next 50 years. Current estimates requires the plant to produce approximately 11 million gallons of water per day.

RESIDENTIAL GARBAGE PICK-UP
The City of Elkton also provides weekly curbside garbage pick-up for each resident. The City contracts with Waste Management, who provides each resident with a container and picks up garbage every Friday morning. All containers should be placed curbside Thursday night to guarantee pick up. The rate for garbage pick up is $9.77 per container per month.
This fee also covers a once a year “spring cleanup” that allows residents to place certain large junk items to the curb to be picked up and hauled off. Look for announcements on our website for dates of these events, but it is generally in April each year.
The Utility expressly reserves the right to disconnect, confiscate unauthorized devices, and/or discontinue service or any other connection with or without notice where the Utility discovers, finds or is otherwise made aware of any such installation that poses a threat to the supply, public health or public safety.
Supply – the utility cannot guarantee uninterrupted service and will not be responsible for any claims arising out of the failure to deliver continuous service.
