Dump fees will increase July 1

It will soon cost more to dump household garbage and green waste at the county transfer station because of a 15 year oversight by the county and the world’s largest waste removal company, Waste Management.

Beginning July 1, the cost to dump two 32-gallon cans will go up from $4 to $6 and wood and green waste will increase from $15 per ton to $22.50 per ton. That equates to about $2.25 a pickup load, said Steve Porter, Solid Waste Manager.

The reason for the can increase is to capture the transaction cost, Porter said.

The transaction cost to weigh the load of trash and haul it away is $13.52.

Construction and demolition waste will not go up from the current rate of $59.50.

The county transfer station is located at 14741 Wolf Mountain Road, off McCourtney in Grass Valley and open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. seven days a week.
