A 4.5-acre expansion project at the Adobe Buttes landfill has resulted in price increases for the City of Delta, Town of Paonia and private haulers who serve businesses and residences in Delta County.
Earlier this month, the Delta County Commissioners raised the per-ton tipping charge from $28 per ton to $40 per ton to cover state permits, operational expenses, monitoring/stormwater fees, equipment replacement costs and administrative support for the landfill.
Following action by the Board of County Commissioners on Monday, some fees at the county landfill will be raised beginning Jan. 1, 2018.
The per-ton charge assessed mostly to commercial haulers will rise from the current $28 per ton to $40 per ton.
The liner for a new cell at the Adobe Buttes Landfill has come in well under cost estimates.
Earlier this month, the county commissioners accepted a bid from Con-Sy Inc. of Grand Junction of $553,895 to install an impermeable barrier in the bottom of the new cell.
