All charges referred to are subject to a $5 minimum charge; $10 minimum for non-separated loads. All charges will be rounded up or down to the nearest quarter of a dollar.

All loads of municipal solid waste (except residential curbside pickup) containing non-separated controlled waste or recyclable materials will be assessed a tipping fee which is two times the regular fee of the most expensive material in the load. This fee will be charged for the entire load. Plus, an additional $100/hr for handling and separation by site staff.

The weight of materials delivered to the landfill or transfer station site, on which fees are based, will be determined by:

  • Measuring the weight on the scale provided at the landfill or transfer station site; or
  • In the event that the scale provided is not operational, weight will be estimated by the scale attendant.
