Fee increases for disposal of certain materials at Pickles Butte Sanitary Landfill will increase starting on January 1, 2019.  These new and increased fees are necessary to cover proportional costs of landfill operations, and are reasonably related to, but do not exceed, the actual cost of the services being rendered. The fee increases are as follows:

Fee Increases

  • Demolition Materials – Increase from $14.50 to $34.00/ton
  • Hard to Handle Waste (see below) – Increase from $14.50 to $21.75/ton
    • Large Stumps
    • Bio Solids
    • Concrete
    • Mobile Homes
    • Dead Animals
    • Mattresses
    • Drip Lines

In addition, new fees will be charged for extraordinary services performed by landfill staff.  The new fees are as follows:

 New Fees for Extraordinary Services

  • Surcharge for Uncovered/Unsecured Loads – $50.00
  • Digging Out Boxes (per box) – $25.00
  • Anchoring (per anchor) – $15.00
  • Vehicle/trailer battery jumping – $10.00
  • Gate closure late fee – $20.00
  • Clean Wood violation Penalty – $15.00

The Board of County Commissioners signed a resolution to approve the fee increases after holding a public hearing on October 19, 2018 where several individuals who work in the demolition and construction cleanup field expressed opposition to the plan. The standard price per ton of residential cleanup waste will remain the same at $14.50.
