Licensed Trash Haulers

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

As of January 1, 2018, “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.

The R&E Board will provide a rebate, in the amount of $10.00 per ton, to haulers that have a waste delivery agreement with the R&E Board and deliver waste from Ramsey and Washington counties to the R&E Center in 2019. That means the net cost (with the rebate) to haulers delivering waste from Ramsey or Washington county under an R&E Board waste delivery 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.

The following transfer stations are available to haulers with an R&E Board waste delivery agreement for delivery of waste from Ramsey or Washington counties at the same tip rate 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.
