Wood waste disposal fee reduced

Recently, the Board of County Commissioners reduced the wood waste disposal fee at the Summit County Waste Facility (landfill) to encourage residents to remove beetle-infested trees and recycle them early this summer. Effective immediately, the fee for disposing of clean wood waste at the landfill has been reduced to $15 per ton with a $5 minimum charge. This fee reduction represents a 50 percent discount from the regular rate of $30 per ton. This new fee will remain in effect until 4 p.m. June 30. Any cash customers who brought in clean wood waste after May 1 can be reimbursed for the difference of the new rate and should bring their receipt to the landfill. Wood waste mixed with trash will not be accepted for recycling and will be charged normal landfill disposal rates. All loads entering the landfill must be covered.The wood waste collected at the landfill will be chipped for mulch and used in a new composting initiative. Both the wood chips and the finished compost will ultimately be available to the public for purchase at a reasonable rate.
