Oswego County Tipping Fee Stickers Will Expire Jan. 31

Oswego County residents are reminded that the orange tipping fee stickers issued by the Oswego County Division of Solid Waste expire Monday, Jan. 31.

New tipping fee stickers will be available for purchase at the transfer stations Jan. 25. The current stickers will be replaced by gray stickers that expire Jan. 31, 2006.

Stickers purchased between January and the end of July cost $75. Stickers purchased on or after Aug. 1 will cost $37.50. Stickers for additional household vehicles will be available for $5 each. Checks should be made out to "Oswego County Solid Waste."

Mark Lichtenstein, Deputy Director of the Division of Solid Waste, said that proof of Oswego County residency, purchaser's vehicle, and vehicle registration are required at the time of purchase. The vehicle registration must show the purchaser's household address. Post office box addresses and tax or deed receipts, without additional information, are not acceptable proof of residency. Business vehicles, and vehicles that don't have the purchaser's household address on the vehicle registration, won't be issued stickers.

Residential users may purchase a punch card instead of a tipping fee sticker. Each card costs $15 and is good for approximately 20 kitchen-sized 13-gallon trash bags.

Hours and Locations: Oswego County solid waste transfer stations and recycling drop-off centers are open Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. Sticker sales and weigh scale operations end at 4 p.m. weekdays and 11:30 a.m. Saturdays.

Transfer stations are located at:

  • Bristol Hill, 3125 state Route 3, Volney;
  • 1167 county Route 7, Hannibal;
  • 1391 U.S. Route 11, Hastings;
  • 700 E. Seneca Street, Oswego; and
  • 100 county Route 2A, Pulaski.

Lichtenstein said residents may dispose of other materials as follows:

  • Recycling Sticker: Residents who are not using a tipping fee sticker or punch card are required to purchase a recycling sticker in order to bring their recyclable materials to a transfer station. The residential recycling sticker is $10.
  • Tires: The cost to dispose of tires is $60 per ton.
  • Appliances: Residents will need to purchase a CFC sticker to dispose of appliances containing refrigerant (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, etc.). The CFC sticker is $15.
  • Brush and Tree Waste: The cost to dispose of large loads of brush and tree waste, wood chips or other compostable materials is $20 per ton. Residents who have their vehicles loaded with compost and/or wood chips will be charged $5 for a 2-wheel trailer to 4-wheel vehicle; $10 for a 6-wheel vehicle; and $15 for a 10-wheel vehicle.
  • Construction Waste: Residents may hire a contractor to haul construction waste or they may bring the material to a transfer station and pay $60 per ton. Waste materials that must be weighed are not accepted at the Hannibal transfer station because the Hannibal facility doesn't have scales.
