Solid Waste Fee Schedule (856 KB)
Processing electronic waste is particularly challenging and labor intensive under the current circumstances. We recommend holding onto your e-waste until we can fully restore traffic flow to the way it was pre-COVID-19.
We are unable to weigh electronic waste to assess a fee per-pound and must charge a flat fee for various electronic items.
If you absolutely must dispose of an electronic item, the following temporary fees apply:
(Not an inclusive list)
$5.00 Fee (per item)
$10.00 Fee (per item)
Commercial Copiers & Fax Machines (small)
$20.00 Fee (per item)
Commercial Copiers & Fax Machines (large)
$40.00 Fee (per item)
Customers will not be allowed out of their vehicles in the Garbage Transaction Area (maintaining social distancing measures)
Staff will determine the disposal cost using existing Solid Waste Fee Schedule - except for electronic waste where temporary fees apply (see above)
Follow signs and directions from staff
Limit two customers per lane in the roll-off area
