The Utility Billing office provides customer service to the city’s water, sewer and sanitation customers, including starting and stopping service, ordering roll-off dumpsters, and responding to inquiries about billing.

All occupied city buildings must have water, sewer, and trash-collection service. Per city code, the City of Elkins is the only allowed provider of trash-collection service inside city limits. The City of Elkins cannot offer trash-collection service outside city limits.

The Utility Billing office does not handle special bulk trash collection (“special pickups”). For information about this service, please click here.
