Landfill Rates Going Up

Gate fees at the Eastlake Landfill will be increased starting July 1, 2018 to offset the costs of landfill operations and compliance regulations.
               
Effective July 2, the tonnage rates will be $59.33/ton. Volume rates for loads up to three cubic yards will be $10/cubic yard.  The minimum gate fee will be $10 with the exception of a single bag less than 96-gallons which will be $5/bag. Other material-specific charges have changed, such as mattresses, couches, chairs; please contact the Public Services Department at 707-262-1618 for questions. Even with the approved increase, the Eastlake Landfill will have considerably lower rates than most surrounding landfills.
               
The increased landfill rates will have an impact on curbside residential and commercial customers in Lake County. Beginning in July 2018 residential customers can expect to see an increase in their billing statement for the pass-through cost of solid waste disposal at the Eastlake Landfill.
