Licensed Trash Haulers

The 2019 tipping fee for all acceptable waste delivered to the Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy Center (R&E Center) in Newport, MN, or to a participating transfer station is $79.00 per ton.

“Waste designation” ordinances in Ramsey and Washington counties require that all trash from the two counties be delivered to and processed at the R&E Center. As of January 1, 2019, the R&E Center will no longer accept public entity waste from outside of Ramsey and Washington counties.

Ramsey/Washington Recycling & Energy (R&E) provides a rebate, in the amount of $10.00 per ton, to haulers that have a waste delivery agreement with R&E. That means the net cost (with the rebate) to haulers delivering waste under an R&E agreement is $69.00 per ton for 2019. There is no rebate for waste delivered by a hauler that has not signed a waste delivery agreement. Note that rebates will be set to $0 beginning in 2020 - you can find more information on that decision here.

The following transfer stations are available to haulers with an R&E waste delivery agreement for delivery of waste from Ramsey or Washington counties at the same tip fee as the R&E Center ($79 per ton in 2019):

Haulers that have not signed a waste delivery agreement cannot deliver trash from Ramsey or Washington counties to a transfer station; it must be delivered to the R&E Center in Newport. This is required by each county’s waste designation ordinance.
