Why do you charge for trash and recycling services?

BWA manages water accounts and billing. We have an interlocal agreement with the City of Benbrook to collect specific fees to be included with each monthly bill on behalf of the City of Benbrook. These fees include the Storm Water Utility System Fee and the Refuse & Recycling Fee. Once BWA receives the payment of these fees, the funds are passed along to the City of Benbrook. As a new resident, when you open a water service account, you’ll sign up for trash and recycling services. Residents may also pick up blue recycling bins at that time.
