The Walker Mountain Landfill would like the public to know that the Joint Solid Waste Commission has adjusted landfill disposal charges and new rates will go into effect on June 1, 2021.
The new pricing structure simplifies garbage disposal fees used in the scale system for customers who have less than a ton and will round to the nearest dollar from the previous rates.
As an example, the current fee for garbage and industrial waste between 0 pounds to 100 pounds is $5.10. That fee would be rounded to $5.00.
Changing fees to a specific dollar figure will minimize the need for making change, shortening the transaction time and the amount of time customers wait in line.
