LOGAN — The Harrison County Landfill Commission (HCLC) will implement a new tipping fee for solid waste material effective starting in July.
The HCLC representatives voted last month at the regular monthly meeting on the FY ‘21-22 rates.
Beginning July 1, the fee for solid waste will be $50/ton with a $10 minimum fee for loads of 400 pounds or less.
Rates for yard waste, tires and freon appliances will remain the same.
However, the rates for televisions 25 inches and larger and non-freon appliances will be reduced.
Televisions between 25-40 inches will pay out $15 instead of $20. And televisions that are 40 inches and larger will pay out $25 instead of $30. Console televisions will remain at $30.
Non-freon appliances will drop from $12 each to $10 each.
The HCLC wants to remind and encourage Harrison County residents to take advantage of the free disposal of household hazardous materials (HHM). This service is available during regular business hours.
HHM includes items like household cleaners, pesticides, stains, used oil, anti-freeze and oil-based paints.
A note: Latex paint is not hazardous and needs to be dried out before it can be considered waste.
Check out the Landfill Commission’s Facebook page for a more complete list of all the items that can be disposed at their facility. Or you can call the office at 712-644-3093.
They also accept batteries for free. – Lead-Acid, Lithium-Ion, and Nickle-Cadmium all pose a fire risk when thrown into the landfill.
Please remove all batteries from cell phones, toy cars, and other electronics before disposing of them.
Finally, please do not set recycling on the ground next to a full container. This is beginning to be a problem in many communities. It causes the waste to blow around and become litter.
