South Kent Recycling & Waste Center
Receives municipal solid waste from waste haulers and individuals and incinerator ash from the WTE Facility.
After Hours Service Fee
After closing hours we refuse the admittance of any additional customers. Customers that remain on the premises and are not done dumping by our closing time, a surcharge will be added to the tipping fee. This will cover all extra manpower and equipment costs that are incurred by the Department of Public Works. This is our policy and we can make NO EXCEPTIONS. The surcharge fees are currently as follows:
Up to 15 minutes = $45
16-30 minutes = $90
31-45 minutes = $135
46-60 minutes = $180
For each additional unit time increment add $45.
