North Adams Increasing Waste Disposal Prices

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Residents will see a price hike in transfer station bags of 25 to 50 cents beginning in July and a scale rate jump of about 75 cents per pound. This is expected to cost the average family of four about $53 more a year to dispose of their trash.
The Public Services Committee is recommending the adoption of the new prices for fiscal 2022 after reviewing the figures on Wednesday. The City Council passed the changes to a second reading and publication at its June 8 meeting, with referal to Public Services. The full council is expected to give final approval Tuesday.
The fees at the transfer station are based on costs of labor and disposal of waste, which has continued to rise. 
The cost of a 33-gallon bag will rise 50 cents to $3 and 15-18 gallon bags by 25 cents to $1.50. This is the first bag increase in two years. The scale rate per ton will increase by 0.749 cents, from $133.45 to $149.83, or $52.97.
