Grant County Solid Waste disposal fees increase March 1

| February 23, 2021 1:00 AM

Grant County Public Works Solid Waste Division will increase disposal fees at the Grant County Landfill and the two drop box sites effective March 1.

The county has not raised rates in more than a decade, Grant County Public Works Director Sam Castro said, so it has some catching up to do.

The new landfill fee will be $49.33 per ton for general waste. The rate for asbestos will increase to $49.33 per ton. The minimum disposal fee will be $4.93. All other rates will remain the same.

Drop box fees will increase to $57.40 per cubic yard. Less than 1/2 cubic yard of waste will be $28.69. Refrigeration units either with or without freon or compressors will remain $7.25 each. All other appliances will be $4.93. Exact change or check is required because the drop box attendant cannot make change.
