Information & Policies

Billing Policy
  • Residential and Commercial Customers are billed on a quarterly basis. Industrial Customers and Hauled Waste Customers are billed monthly.

  • Customers in Hazleton City and West Hazleton Borough receive a GHJSA bill for both Sewage Treatment and Sewage Transmission. Customers in all other municipalities receive a GHJSA bill for Sewage Treatment only.

  • Sewer Bills are only issued directly to Property Owners. The GHJSA does not bill tenants directly.

  • Vacant properties are issued a sewer bill unless the water meter is removed from the property.

  • Avoid the late charge – Pay the amount due no later than the due date to avoid a 10% penalty assessed on the current sewer charge.

  • Account is considered paid when payment is received in the GHJSA Business Office. GHJSA is not responsible for mail service.

  • Failure to receive a bill does not relieve responsibility for payment when due.

  • There is a $20.00 charge for checks or ACH Bank Drafts returned from a bank for any reason. The charge is directly applied to the customer’s account balance.
