Teton County Commissioners last week approved a 10% increase in the tip fee for landfill-bound solid waste at the Trash Transfer Station. Effective July first, the tip fee for landfill-bound municipal solid waste will increase from $100 per ton to $110 per ton. However, at the same time the tip fee for scrap metal will decrease from $50 per ton to $35 per ton and the tip fee for domestic dead animals will decrease, from $70 per ton to $50 per ton. Increases will be seen for tires without rims and manure, clean dirt and sod. Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling Division Chief Heather Overholser says the tip fee increases will allow Teton County to cover all of its direct and indirect costs associated with each material accepted at the Trash Transfer Station and create a balanced budget for the Solid Waste and Recycling division.
