2007 Solid Waste Stickers will be Available Jan. 2
The Oswego County Department of Solid Waste has announced several changes that will become effective Jan. 1, 2007. The changes in user fees are being implemented to more accurately reflect operating costs of the solid waste disposal and recycling programs.
“Many of the solid waste fees have remained the same for several years,” said Frank Visser, Director of Solid Waste Programs for the Oswego County Department of Solid Waste. “Under the new fee schedule, users of the solid waste system will assume more of the actual operating costs. This will shift some of the burden off the property tax payers.”
Checks should be made out to “Oswego County Solid Waste.” Residents buying a solid waste sticker or a punch card need to show proof of Oswego County residency and have their vehicle and vehicle registration with them at the time of purchase. 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 residential stickers.
Oswego County solid waste transfer stations and recycling drop-off centers are open from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday. Sticker sales and weigh scale operations end at 4 p.m. weekdays and 11:30 a.m. Saturdays.
For more information regarding fees or solid waste programs, contact the Department of Solid Waste, phone 591-9200, weekdays between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
