It’s a small price to pay when it’s the right thing to do.

It’s important that our facility is accessible to everyone, so we keep our costs as low as possible, without compromising safety. Your local government believes in the safe handling of HHW and that’s why so many jurisdictions subsidize the costs. It’s that important to encourage the public to bring in their HHW. We care so much about this issue that the majority of the costs are largely paid for; customers pay just a small co-pay.

Out-of-county residents pay $118 for the first 75 pounds of HHW, compared to in-county residents who pay a co-pay of just $30. For a detailed list of costs, see below.
