Sometime just before closing, you should contact your utility companies for your home. You should let them know that you are selling your house and that you are closing soon. They will order final readings and change the billing over to the new owners. Here are a few to remember to contact.

Water / Sewer
Garbage

Some cities require you to use the city's garbage collection. Other cities require you to hire a waste hauler. Check with your particular city to see what applies in your area.
