Posted on November 21, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



MIDDLEBURY — County residents are likely to see higher costs for handling their trash and recycling next year, as the cratered market for recycled materials has triggered price increases for some services in the 2019 Addison County Solid Waste Management District budget.

The biggest change in the $3.22 million budget, adopted by the district board on Nov. 15, is the higher per-ton rate the district’s Middlebury transfer station will charge haulers to drop off most recycling: $92, up from $50.
