  • $10 for pickup trucks and passenger vehicles with trailers.
  • $100 for commercial vehicles.

Non-Recycling Surcharge

A surcharge on loads containing 25% or more recyclables is in place to help keep recyclables out of the landfill and extend the life of the facility.

Gate fees may be doubled on loads containing 25% or more of recyclable materials with a $15 minimum charge.
