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 2018. 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):
Advanced Transfer Station, 309 Como Avenue, Saint Paul
Republic Transfer Station, Blaine
Dem-Con Blaine Transfer Station, 3280 99th Court NE, Blaine
SKB Blaine Transfer Station, 10304 Naples St NE, Blaine
SKB Malcom Ave Transfer Station, 630 Malcolm Ave SE, Minneapolis
Walter's Transfer Station, Blaine
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.
