Updated fees for the Teton County Trash Transfer and Teton County Recycling Facilities will be available for public review in Wednesday’s Jackson Hole News&Guide.
Fees for municipal solid waste haven’t increased since 2016, according to a staff report, and fees for household hazardous waste haven’t been adjusted in over a decade. The fee for organics increased from $70 per ton to $80 per ton in 2017. The fees seek to incentivize recycling and composting by pricing them substantially lower than throwing away trash.
The new fees are available for public feedback through mid-July, when they are anticipated to be adopted by the Teton County Board of County Commissioners at a July 16 meeting.
