I received a card mailer telling me that the annual residential solid waste service charges for July 2021 through June 2022 are being prepared to be placed on the county property tax roll. The card offers to avoid tax roll billing by contacting Yucaipa Disposal (contractor) no later than July 16, 2021 to prepay for the services.

I contacted Yucaipa Disposal and was told the amount due is the same with property tax billing or with prepay. Here’s the rub ... we get no discount with prepay and the contractor gets the use of our money ahead of doing the services. In addition, the cost savings for the county not having to bill us is also not discounted. It’s a sweet deal for city hall, contractor, and county except for the property owner that always gets the short end of the stick.
