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
|$35.00 per household|
|Out of County Residents||$100.00 per household|
