WHY IS UNSORTED WASTE COST SO HIGH @ $210 PER TON?
UNSORTED WASTE: NON-HOUSEHOLD All other waste, including waste
produced by contractors performing new construction, remodeling or landscaping work; waste produced by households or businesses conducting one-time cleanup or construction activities of any structure. Unsorted materials that have no reuse/recycle value and not considered to be an inert material. These construction materials can potentially contain asbestos which is very hard to identify especially when loads are mixed with all types of debris. Unsorted waste is also materials that could have been sorted by the customer to its designated piles, but customer chooses not to.
Construction Materials that are not inert can contaminate ground water, soil or air. The remediation of ground water, soil and air is an expensive endeavor and can become a financial burden on tax payers for millions of dollars. Therefore, unsorted materials carry a significantly higher cost when disposed of in landfills or in Construction and Demolition Pits to cover the cost of managing this waste properly and to cover any potential future cost of unforeseen contamination issues and possible required remediation.
The following are some items that are considered Unsorted and will be charged at the $210 per ton and
may be inspected before disposed of:
Asphalt Shingles & Asphalt/Tar Paper
Bituthene – Roofing Underlayment
Boats – nonmetal or non-wood
Camper Shells – Non metal
Cedar Shingles mixed with other roof Materials
Drywall Compound Boxes/Containers
Engineered Flooring with padding/Insulation
Hot Tubs & Hot Tub Covers/Lids
Insulation – All Types
Lumber Wrap Tarps
Melamine Building Materials
Pallets/Crates with other materials attached
Plumbing Fixtures - non-porcelain/non metal
Pressure Treated Lumber
PVC Piping or any plastic piping
Shop Cleanups that are unsorted products
