Landfill Fees in Fulton County, NY Stay Level for ‘18

SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): Fees for use of the Fulton County landfill will virtually remain the same next year. The Board of Supervisors’ Economic Development and Environment Committee on Wednesday at the County Office Building authorized setting of tipping, or use, fees for the landfill. The full board will finalize the fees Nov. 13.

Across the board, most of the fees in major categories will remain the same for 2018. An exception is the out-of-county contracted waste category, which would be increased from $56 per ton to $60.

Department of Solid Waste consultant Jeff Bouchard said the construction and demolition waste from outside sources takes up much landfill space, a reason to raise that fee. “What we’re seeing in that category for out-of-county is the C&D waste,” Bouchard said.

The department also requested reinstating the out-of-county large load category, which is up to 20,000 tons per year. This would be increased, from the last time it was raised, from $5 per ton to $45 per ton. In 2018, the landfill’s new cell will be operational requiring select refuse, which excludes C&D material, for the protection layer.

The landfill disposal rate schedule is anticipated to raise the necessary funds for a balanced 2018 department budget.

Tipping fees per ton recommended in major categories whose rates remain the same for 2018 are: friable asbestos — $75; construction/demolition — $55; commercial — $55; contaminated soil — $25; county transfer haul — $53; municipal/county demolition — $25; industrial waste — $55; municipal direct haul — $33; sludge — $44; uncovered load — $150; cleanup program –$50; out-of-county contracted waste — $60; transfer station recycling — $10; curbside recycling — $20; bulk tires (20 or more) — $250; tires (up to and including 16-inch) — $2.50.

In the department’s operations report, the committee heard that leachate tank cleanings were completed per an annual state Department of Environmental Conservation permit. Line cleanings were also complete.
