Residential Costs at Landfill

With the new pay-by-the-bag collection program the costs for residents to dispose of rubbish at the Graham Road Landfill will be a minimum charge of $5 per load for any type of rubbish you bring to the landfill (actual charge based on weight of load at a cost of $80 per ton). We would not expect or want residents to use the Brunswick bag for the rubbish they bring to the landfill. The cost of the bags helps defray the collection cost and does not cover the disposal fee.

Residential disposal rates for the Graham Road Landfill are as follows:

  • Asphalt Shingles: $60 per ton, $3 minimum charge
  • Brush/Trees: No charge (current rate)
  • Household Rubbish: $80 per ton, $5 minimum charge
  • Masonry: $60 per ton, $3 minimum charge
  • Metal/White Goods: $60 per ton, $3 minimum charge
  • Sheetrock: $60 per ton, $3 minimum charge
  • Waste Wood: $60 per ton, $3 minimum charge

Unacceptable Material

The following liquids are deemed "Unacceptable Material" and will not be accepted for disposal at Graham Road Landfill:

  • Antifreeze
  • Any Liquid Material That Is Clearly Not Oil
  • Cooking Oil
  • Gasoline
  • Motor Oil Containing Gasoline or Antifreeze
  • Oil Based Paint
  • Paint Thinner/Turpentine/Solvent
  • Transmission Fluid

Residents should treat the items as Household Hazardous Waste and should plan to bring them to the fall residential Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day for disposal.

Motor Oil

Please remember motor oil is a hazardous waste and should never be put in the trash, poured down the drain or dumped on the ground. A single quart of motor oil can pollute 250,000 gallons of water. Your participation and cooperation in complying with the above guidelines will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping make Brunswick a healthier and safer community!
