This assessment is for the collection and disposal of residential solid waste. Housing units up to, and including, a four-plex are charged on the tax bill. The residential collection rate is $176.10 per residential unit per year. Taxpayers qualifying for the State Property Tax Assistance Program receive a 50% reduction for their solid waste assessment.
Each unit is given a permit to self-haul bulk waste to the Transfer Station. Each unit is allowed 1.5 tons (3000 lbs). If you exceed the 1.5 tons (3000 lbs) , those overages are billed directly to you at the Transfer Station at time of disposal. Current tipping rate of $58.75 per ton applies to all disposal or recycling.
Loads brought in containing only acceptable recyclable material do not count towards the against the 1.5 tons (3000 lbs) limit and are not subject to additional transfer station charges.
Replacement of residential permits are $5.00.
