Returned checks will be charged a $30.00 fee per check.

Automatic Debit Using Your Bank Account

Enrolling in auto pay will save you time, effort, postage and most importantly reduce paper waste. East Bay Sanitary will still mail or e-mail (if you choose paperless) a statement. The bill will show the amount you owe for your billing period and include the date it will be debited from your pre-assigned checking account. That date usually will be around the 15th of the first month of the billing period. (Example: Jan 15th for the January thru April garbage bill.) The amount will then be automatically deducted from your checking account on the date specified on your garbage bill. No additional fees will be added for this payment option.
