The City of Kettering’s  contract with Waste Management offers substantial savings to most of our residents. A resident switching from the current house-side service to the new standard curbside automated service will enjoy a savings of more than $115 per year. We  were able to retain a subscription option for residents who wish to continue premium house-side service at a modest increase over current rates. The new contract also offers a reduced rate for income eligible and age qualified seniors.
