If you received a notice regarding delinquent trash charges, this means that your property has been identified as having delinquent charges for trash service for all or a portion of the 2022 calendar year. Under an agreement between the County of Riverside and your trash company, delinquent trash charges are placed annually on the coming year’s property tax bills. This process is used to keep the costs for the collection of waste as low as possible for all residents of the unincorporated areas of Riverside County.
For questions about your delinquent trash charges, fill out the inquiry form below and a department representative will contact you within two business days.
