For Immediate Release: February 5th, 2021
Old Disposal Punch Cards Will Be Accepted Through April
Since January 1st, 2021 disposal punch cards used at the Recycling and Solid Waste Center cost $15 and have a blue background. Orange punch cards left over from previous years can still be used for a limited time. The last day these orange punch cards will be accepted has been extended to April 30th.
Unused punch cards, meaning punch cards with all 5 punches remaining, can be exchanged at the Recycling and Materials Management Office and at the Recycling and Solid Waste Center Weigh Station. There is a $3 fee to make up the difference in cost, and the unused punch card must be turned in. Partially used punch cards cannot be exchanged.
