In the City of Aberdeen, tenants are not able to set up service in their name as the utility charges are lienable against the property. Homeowners or designated property managers must complete a Tenant Authorization Form, which will ensure that the tenant will receive a copy of the bill with their name on it. If the completed form is not received by the end of the month, you will continue to receive the bill and it will be between you and the tenant to take care of the charges.

3 - Once you are ready to activate service, please contact LeMay of Grays Harbor to set up garbage service. Their number is (360) 533-1251. If the residence will be occupied, you or the tenant must have garbage service before the water can be activated. If the residence will be vacant, and you do not currently need garbage service there, you can put the service on a "Vacation Hold" for up to 4 months in a calendar year. During a vacation hold, no charges are accrued. We are not able to activate the utilities until garbage service is established as per Aberdeen Municipal Code. LeMay will send me an e-mail confirmation once the account has been set up.
