Sewer Bill Payments

Customers have many options for paying on their sewer bill accounts.  Payment methods are as follows:

    • Bring your payment, along with the return stub, to any branch of the First Keystone Community Bank of Berwick.  First Keystone Community Bank is acting only as a collection agent and will not be able to respond to questions regarding account balances or other issues.
    • Mail payment along with the return stub to BAJSA, 1108 Freas Avenue, Berwick, PA  18603-1710.
    • Complete the ACH Application Form (located on the right side of this page) and send it to our office with a voided check.
    • NEW ONLINE PAYMENTS are now being accepted, or via counter service and telephone, with the addition of processing fees.

There will be a Handling Fee added to your transaction to cover processing costs. This fee is sated on the payment screen. Your fee amount will be displayed once you have entered your payment information.  If for any reason a credit card transaction is reversed by the customer, the charge back fees will be applied back to the customer's sewer account.  BAJSA is not responsible for paying charge back fees that are solely at the discretion of the BAJSA customer.

RETURNED PAYMENT CHARGES

  • The BAJSA will charge a $25.00 fee for any payments that are reversed on an account, due to returned checks, PayPal reversals and ACH processed payments sent back from the bank.

For a breakdown of our fees, please visit our Services & Rates page.

Residential bills are sent only on a quarterly basis, yet payments can be made monthly, if desired.

Penalties and Non-Payments

Sewer rates and other charges shall be due and payable prior to the applicable due date.  Any rates or charges not paid in full by the due date are subject to an additional sum of $6.00 or 4.5% (whichever is greater) per quarter to any outstanding balance for residential customers, and $2.00 or 1.5% (whichever is greater) per month to any outstanding balance for commercial customers.

Failure to pay your quarterly/monthly sewer bill may result in additional charges and/or your water services terminated.  Once a property is posted for a water shut off, there are additional charges of $25.00 per unit, and could result in additional charges of $90.00 per unit, if failure is made to pay by the shut off due date.


What's New

Berwick Borough Rate Increase

The Berwick Area Joint Sewer Authority board members voted on September 23, 2015 to increase the Berwick Borough residential/commercial sewer rates by $3.50 per month/per EDU.  Any Berwick Borough BAJSA account that had paid one lump sum in the beginning of the year will be receiving a billing in the 4th quarter for the difference with this increase.  Also, anyone that is signed up with ACH or has automatic on-line bill pay with their bank will have to adjust their records accordingly.

 

Salem Tappage Fee Penalty

Effective August 2013, Salem Township residents whom hold an outstanding tappage fee balance will be charged a penalty of 1.5% per month.  If you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to contact us at (570) 752-8477.
