The Board of County Commissioners approved new waste tipping fees specific to Hoods Mill Landfill on Thursday.

Two years ago the Board considered closing Hoods Mill because of increased costs inherent in operating the facility. After significant deliberation and debate it was decided to leave this remote drop-off location open on a limited basis in order to accommodate local area resident’s needs. Since 2012 Hoods Mill has been open on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month.

Recently, the Board has considered opening Hoods Mill every Saturday in response to resident’s requests. The only concern was the expense of operating this remote site. As a result, the Board had considered and now has adopted special tipping fees for Hoods Mill.

Municipal solid waste disposal will increase from $62.00 per ton to $68.00 per ton
Flat rate charge to vehicles for residential waste per load will increase from $6.00 to $8.00
No change for construction and demolition debris and scrap tires
No change for residential customer for mulch – still no charge

These changes take effect immediately.
