COATESVILLE RESIDENTS CAN NOW PAY SOLID WASTE FEE ONLINE WITH KEYSTONE
City of Coatesville residents are now able to pay the annual solid waste fee online with the same ease and confidence they now experience paying real estate taxes through Keystone Collections Group’s e-Pay. Through a new agreement with Keystone, the City’s solid waste fee will now be printed on the current real estate tax bill. Coatesville residents can expect to receive their joint real estate tax and solid waste bills as soon as Feb. I, 2018. Those paying before March 31 receive a 2 percent discount. “Keystone helps communities like Coatesville to achieve greater efficiency by allowing residents to pay online,” said Rose M. Harr, Keystone’s vice president of client relations. Taxpayers will now have the option of paying their real estate taxes and solid waste fees online through Keystone’s fast and secure e-Pay, available on Keystone’s website www.KeystoneCollects.com. Residents can enter their invoice number, select their method of payment ( electronic bank transfer or credit card), and receive confirmation the tax is paid, Harr said. Real estate taxes and solid waste fees can also be paid by mail. Under state law, property owners whose mortgage companies pay the real estate tax from an escrow account must receive a city tax bill directly. These property owners should then forward the bill to their mortgage
company to ensure the tax is paid timely. Residents should go online and pay the solid waste fee directly to Keystone. Property owners who do not receive a real estate tax and solid waste bill in February, or who have questions, should contact Keystone directly at 1-866-539-1100, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., or anytime by clicking the “Contact Us” link on the website.

RECYCLING

Recycling plastic, paper, glass and all other eligible recycling material must be separated from
trash that is collected and hauled by the City’s hauler or your private hauler. The Recycling mobile carts were distributed to customers to be used for collection and pick-up of recyclable materials. The City Codes Department will issue violations for any residential, commercial, industrial or institutional property that does not recycle eligible materials as required. Re-
cycling is the responsible thing to do and ultimately helps keep your solid waste bills as low as possible.
