For the two of us we pay around 6,000 every 3 months for water, a bit more in winter when we take more baths.

Electricity is about 3,000 to 5,000 a month for us, the higher price is usually in mid-summer and mid-winter when we use the A/C and heating more.

Garbage collection depends on the ward/ city. Where I live I assume it is paid out of the resident's tax, but in other areas you have to buy special bags and pay for it that way.
