Paying your utility bill
The City of Airdrie bills for water, sewer, garbage collection and environmental service fees bi-monthly.
The City of Airdrie offers a number of payment options. Choose the option that is right for you and return your payment by the date specified on your bill.
- Online payment service: To pay by Visa or MasterCard up to $800.
- Pre-authorized payment plan: The amount due on your utility bill will be withdrawn from your bank account on the current charge due date.
- Pre-authorized budget payment plan: A preset amount will be withdrawn from your bank account on the last day of each month, rather than a single payment every two months. Once you have signed up for the program your only responsibility is to review your bill. By monitoring your bill and your water usage, you can ensure problems such as leaky faucets and running toilets do not wreak havoc on the cost of your utilities. Any payment returned NSF will result in termination of the plan and a NSF fee being added to the account. All outstanding balances and NSF fees become subject to penalties.
- Online or telephone banking: Most banking institutions have the City of Airdrie listed for making payments via the Internet or telephone banking. You can set up your payments through the following banking institutions: ATB, BMO, CIBC, Credit Union (please be specific), HKBC, RBC, Scotia and TD Canada Trust. Please be sure to use all eight digits of your account number without the decimal point. Payments are usually received and processed by the City within two to three business days.
