Licensed trash haulers – What’s new for 2018?
The 2018 tipping fee for all acceptable waste coming into the Recycling & Energy Center (R&E Center) in Newport, MN., or to a participating transfer station, is $77.00 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. The R&E Center will also accept waste from public entities outside the two counties that sign an out-of-county waste delivery agreement with the R&E Board. Waste from outside of Ramsey and Washington counties is not accepted unless it is public entity waste and an agreement with the R&E Board is in place. The cost to deliver out-of-county public entity waste (with a waste delivery agreement) is $94.00 per ton.
The R&E Board will provide a rebate, in the amount of $12.00 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 will be $65.00 per ton for 2018. There is no rebate for public entity out-of-county waste, or for waste from Ramsey or Washington counties 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 ($77 per ton):
- Advanced Transfer Station on Como Avenue, Saint Paul
- Republic Transfer Station, Blaine
- Shamrock Blaine Transfer Station
- SKB Malcom Transfer Station, Minneapolis
- SKB Transfer Station, Blaine
- 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.
