The Proposed 2020 Town Budget includes an increase in Disposal Site tipping fees. The focus of the fee increase is to put an incentive on waste sorting and recycling in both the residential and commercial sectors. The most significant increase in fees will be on unsorted loads of construction and demolition materials.
