The Garrett County Department of Solid Waste and Recycling announced yesterday new rates for tipping and residential refuse permits.
Effective July 1, the landfill tipping fee will be $45 per ton for municipal and commercial waste, as well as construction, demolition, and yard debris.
The Garrett County commissioners approved the increase from the current rates of $35 (household)/ $40 (construction) per ton to cover the costs for continued operation of the landfill and the collection sites.

Residential users will also see an increase when they purchase their 2013 refuse permit. Currently, the annual permit costs $25. Beginning in 2013 the permit cost will be $50, which equates to less than $1 per week.
Permit holders are able to dispose of all their household trash and an occasional bulky item at any of the six collection sites located throughout the county.
Individuals must maintain a household in Garrett County in order to be eligible for the annual permit, and the refuse to be disposed of must have been generated in Garrett County.
For more information about the annual permit, persons may call the Garrett County Landfill at 301-387-0322.
