What is considered to be (non-chargeable) Residential Waste?

Residential Waste is ordinary household trash and yard waste from residential properties. Most residential waste can be disposed of WITHOUT CHARGE at the Disposal Site due to the fact that a Disposal Fee has already been collected through the Land Use Fee on residential property tax bills.

Examples of non-chargeable residential waste include: appliances, clothing, furniture, green waste, manure, mattresses and ordinary household trash. Tires, dead animals, construction, demolition and remodeling materials are charged at the Gate Fee Rate.

Note: Fees are site specific. Information on fees charged at each disposal site can be obtained by clicking on the Disposal Sites link.
