Important information for Waste Delivery Haulers
The tipping fee for 2016 – 2017 for all Acceptable Waste coming into the Recycling & Energy Center (R&E Center) or the participating transfer stations is $70.00 per ton regardless of origin. The R&E Board will provide rebates, in the amount of $12.00 per ton, to haulers that deliver waste from Ramsey and Washington Counties to the R&E Center in 2016 and 2017. That means that the net cost to haulers under a Ramsey and Washington Waste Delivery Agreement will be $58.00 per ton for 2016-2017. Out-of-county waste is accepted at $70 per ton, but is not eligible for the rebate.
We have transload agreements in place with the following transfer stations and they are available to haulers for same tip rate as the R&E Center ($70 per ton):
- Advanced Transfer Station on Como Avenue, Saint Paul
- Dem-Con Shakopee Transfer Station
- Republic Transfer Station, Blaine
- Shamrock Blaine Transfer Station
- Specialized Environmental Technologies (SET) Empire Transfer Station, Empire Township
- SKB Malcom Transfer Station, Minneapolis
- SKB Transfer Station, Blaine
- Walter's Transfer Station, Blaine
All licensed haulers were mailed a contract and update letter on November 20, 2015.
