    We have noticed that there are businesses remitting our customers’ payments owed for waste collection services. These businesses collect from the customer the amount owed on the invoice and charge an additional fee for remitting the invoiced amount to us. Please be advised that we do not endorse, authorize or approve this practice. These businesses do not always inform us of which account to apply the payments, and they sometimes provide incorrect account information, making it impossible for us to properly credit your account. Any errors intentional misconduct, miscommunication, lack of communication or other problems arising from the use of such businesses are at your risk.

    Why take a chance and why pay more? Use one of the convenient payment options described above.

    QAs an NRWS customer, what happens if I pass a bad check?
    A:  Please be careful – because this may now cost you three times as much. The Napa City Council recently adopted a new policy resolution that allows the City of Napa to penalize any person who passes a check on insufficient funds the equivalent of three times the amount of the check if the City is compelled to bring the check issuer to court.The Napa Municipal Code, the California Civil Code, and the Uniform Commercial Code provide that the new penalty schedule shall be as follows:
    1.  Not to exceed $25 for the first offense;
    2.  Not to exceed $35 for the subsequent offense; and
    3.  Up to three times the amount of the check with certified demand for payment. For example: If your garbage bill is  $50 and you issued a $50 bad check, you can be penalized $50 x 3 = $150.00.If you have any question or clarification on this new policy resolution, please call the City’s main Revenue Collection Division at (707) 257-9508 for assistance.
