Council tax bills in Denbighshire will rise by 6.35% in April, with £5.7m in cuts announced to balance the books.
The authority recently followed Conwy to become the second council in Wales to introduce four-weekly collections for non-recyclable waste.
Denbighshire got a near-zero increase in Welsh Government funding, which covers three-quarters of its spending.
The Welsh Government said it offered councils "the best settlement possible in this ninth year of austerity".
The council tax payable on a Band D property will go up by £79.24 a year to £1,327.08, plus additional charges to fund the police and community councils.
Efficiency savings have been made across the board, with an extra £2m to be reinvested into social care to meet rising costs.
