CSWD to raise trash rates

Posted: Updated:
WILLISTON, Vt. -

It's getting more expensive to take out the trash in Chittenden County.

The Chittenden Solid Waste District announced this week that it is raising tipping fees by 22 percent to make up for declining revenues.

The fee will now be $27 per ton of trash headed to the landfill. It's charged to trash haulers and it will be up to the haulers whether they pass the increased cost on to customers. But the solid waste district estimates the potential impact on residential households to be less than $5 a year.
