Transfer Station Tip Fees

Users first weigh their vehicles at the scalehouse prior to dumping their garbage on a tipping floor. The vehicle then gets weighed-out at the scalehouse to determine the weight of the waste dumped. The cost is calculated and deducted from an established account or payment by check is required at that time. Click on "Setting Up A Transfer Station Account" for more information regarding payments. Cash and credit cards are not accepted.

Tipping Fees Decrease by $1.06/ton Beginning June 1, 2015 - Starting on June 1, 2015, the tipping fees charged for the disposal of solid waste types at the MCMUA transfer stations will decrease by $1.06/ton. The current tipping fee of $95.56/ton for the disposal of all waste types will be decreased to $94.50/ton. Due to on-going litigation related to the award of the MCMUA's transfer station operations and disposal contract, the MCMUA maintained the 2015 tipping fee at the 2014 rate for the first half of 2015. With the conclusion and settlement of this litigation, the MCMUA is in a position to lower the tipping fees to $94.50/ton for the second half of 2015. Additionally, the MCMUA anticipates keeping the $94.50/ton tipping fee in place through the end of 2016. See the tipping fee chart below for details.

  • All disposal fees include a host community benefit of approximately $5.11/ton. The host community benefit is comprised of a $4.50/ton benefit paid directly to the host communities plus a 10% discount on the waste the two host municipalities tip at the transfer station. This 10% discount spread amongst all the tons tipped at the transfer stations ranges from approximately $0.60/ton to $0.65/ton and fluctuates based on the relative amount of waste tipped by the host communities versus the tonnages from all the other transfer station customers.
