When you drop off trash at the Mesa County Landfill in 2019, expect to pay a little more than you have in the past.
The Mesa County Commissioners approved an increase to the tipping fees at the landfill. Those fees are what fund the landfill, which receives no taxpayer dollars. It will only be around a $1 increase to the fees next year, and the commissioners said they approved the new fee to keep up with the needs of the landfill.
Right now, the tipping fees allow the landfill to operate a handful of different programs, all of which help take care of our trash.
