Tacoma City Dump Price
Fees for using the Tacoma Transfer and Recovery Center are dependent upon the contents of your disposal. Rates for dumping garbage depend on the weight of the loads and the residency of the person disposing of their waste. Commercial residents and people from out-of-town are charged a flat minimum fee of $20.00, with an additional $7.25 that accrues per 100 pounds of garbage. Tacoma residents must also pay a minimum fee of $20.00 but it covers their first 400 pounds of waste. Every 100 pounds thereafter is another $7.25.
Yard waste is free to dispose of for those who reside in Tacoma. Everyone else is charged $20.00, plus $7.25 per 100 pounds of waste. As with almost all King County recycling locations, there are no fees for recyclable products. The City of Tacoma created a guide to recycling as well. It has answers to all of your questions about what can and cannot be recycled.
The rates for using the facilities allow for an unloading time of 30 minutes. For every half hour increment you spend on site, an additional charge of $12.25 will be added to your bill. These unloading times are recorded from the time you begin unloading to the moment you finish.
