Columbia County Solid Waste Stations Recycling Fee Now in Effect

In November, the Columbia County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution imposing a recycling fee to offset the rising cost of handling the recyclable material brought into the County owned Solid Waste Stations.

Residents will need to purchase an annual recycling permit, if you utilize the County facilities.  THIS IS ONLY FOR RESIDENTS THAT UTILIZE THE COUNTY SOLID WASTE STATIONS.  This does not impact anyone who has curbside pick up.

This is an annual recycling permit and will be in effect for the entire calendar year regardless of when it is purchased.  Therefore, if you purchased this permit in March of 2019 it will still expire on December 31, 2019.  Each year that the County continues this program, residents will have to purchase a permit.

The permit fee structure is as follows:

Residents of Columbia County
with proof of residency
 $50.00 per household
Residents over the age of 65 years
with proof
 $35.00 per household
 Out of County Residents  $100.00 per household
You will receive two stickers per each recycling permit to be placed on your vehicle(s) visible for the station attendants to see.  Also included, will be a recycling protocol of materials that will be accepted at the stations from your household.
The permits are available at all the Columbia County Solid Waste Stations and many Town Clerks.
