The Town of Jerome provides water, sewer and trash collection services to its residents and businesses within and near our town limits. Utility services are billed on a monthly cycle for the previous month's services.
Water and Sewer Service:
For new service, applications can be obtained at Town Hall. Applicants must make an initial deposit equivalent to twice the monthly utility rate plus a $15 new account fee. For changes to existing service, please contact Customer Relations Specialist Terri Card.
Trash pickup for the commercial district is on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Residential zones are divided by routes. Route 1 trash is picked up on Monday and Route 2 is picked up on Friday.
Recycling bins for paper, plastic, aluminum/tin and glass are located in the lot across from the Spirit Room at the corner of Main Street (Hwy 89A) and Jerome Avenue. Cardboard bins are located at the "300 Level" parking lot on Perkinsville Road. The Town of Jerome strongly encourages recycling by all residents and businesses.
