SEPARATION OF ROOFING WASTES
The tipping fee for asphalt shingles and other construction and demolition debris at the Newell Regional Landfill is no charge for less than 1,000kg and $25/tonne for loads over 1,000kg (fee applied to entire load). It is the responsibility of the generator to ensure that any materials brought to the landfill for disposal are acceptable and are separated as required. In the case of asphalt shingles this means that all loose wastes must be bagged separately for alternate disposal. Pallets, metal and cardboard must be also be separated and are directed to other locations.
Smaller amounts of wastes and/or recyclables which should have been separated may require sorting at the landfill and there is no charge if done by the client. Loads which contain substantial amounts of recyclables and/or wastes requiring segregation may be rejected at the landfill. Alternatively if unsorted and dumped at the landfill the Site Manager may apply a $100 to $250 improper sorting surcharge. In addition any landfill operator and equipment time needed for sorting will be charged back at an additional $100/hour.
