Transfer Station, Landfill Tipping Fees Changing For Commercial, Franchise Haulers

Solid Waste

For the first time since 2009, Buncombe County is slightly increasing tipping fees at the Transfer Station and Landfill. Both locations will have an increase of 75-cents per ton and will go into effect on Thursday, Aug. 1. This change will not affect average residents who use the services at both locations; it will only affect large commercial and franchise haulers.

The fees will help offset the County’s new Transfer Station which is set to open in mid-August and will help ease congestion and wait times that the current facility sometimes undergoes. The new Transfer Station will also provide residents with a disposal area that is separate from commercial haulers.

Here’s what commercial and franchise haulers need to know about the new tipping fees:

  • Landfill fees: Effective Aug. 1, 2018, the Landfill tipping fee will increase to $43.75 per ton. All trucks, roll-offs, or flatbeds (compacted or otherwise) of solid wastes which contain less than 5 percent by weight or volume of any of the following wastes: corrugated cardboard, untreated wood products suitable for mulching, concrete, cinder blocks, brick, concrete with steel, or any type metals will pay $43.75 per ton at the Landfill.
