Solid Waste Fee Schedule Changes

The following fee changes went into effect on July 1, 2020:

  • A $300 surcharge will be imposed on any C&D Loads with carpet or furniture.  This fee encourages the separation of C&D (Construction and Demolition) loads to place furniture and carpet in a lined Subtitle D Landfill.  The surcharge addresses concerns of PFAS/PFOA (Polyfluorakyl substances/Perfluorooctanoic acid) entering an unlined landfill.
  • The fee for wooden pallets, clean lumber, and clean logs has been reduced from $18.50 per ton to $9.25 per ton.  Clean logs are three inches or greater in diameter and longer than three feet in length.  The rate for yard waste remains at $18.50 per ton.
  • Large items such as furniture and mattresses/mattress sets are $10 per item with a $20 max charge for a pick-up load.
  • The cost for clean shingles has gone up form $15 per ton to $22 per ton.  This rate is only available as markets allow.
  • We are offering the sale of mulch in 1 CY totes for $40/tote.
  • There are changes to flat rates for vehicles in the event of scale failure.

Administrative Offices in New Location
Administrative offices for Cumberland County Solid Waste have moved to a new location at the Ann Street Landfill at 698 Ann Street. The administrative office has moved to space adjacent to the department’s garage, closer to the main entrance of the landfill.

The new location will make the offices more visible and accessible to customers. Customers entering the Ann Street Landfill will make a right turn onto the regular traffic route toward the landfill scale house. The administration building will be the first building on the left.
