Paying your utility bill

The City of Airdrie bills for water, sewer, garbage collection, curbside organics, curbside recycling and environmental services every 4 weeks.


Payment options

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.

  1. Online payment: Did you know? You can pay for many city services, including your Utility bill, online using myAIRDRIE 
  2. Pre-authorized payment plan: Your pre-authorized payment will be withdrawn on the due date of each bill.  This date will vary - It is based on the date your water meter is read. 
  3. Pre-authorized budget payment plan: A preset amount will be withdrawn from your bank account on the last day of each month, rather than the full amount on the due date. 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.     
  4. 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.
  5. In person at most banks and financial institutions: Payment can be made at the bank through the tellers or at an Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Please note it can take up to two weeks to process payments made through an ATM as it goes to the clearing centre in Calgary to be sorted before it is sent to the City of Airdrie.
  6. By mail: Mail your payment to the Utility department using the address listed to the right. Be sure to include your bill stub or account number. Do not mail cash. Please make cheques payable to the City of Airdrie. 
  7. By phone: Have your account number, credit card number, expiry date, CSV number (three digit number on the back of the credit card) and amount of payment ready.
  8. City Hall Drop Box: A drop box is available at City Hall where you can drop off your cheque payment. Be sure to include your bill stub or account number.
