As of January 1st, 2021, trash disposal punch cards used at the Recycling and Solid Waste Center cost $15 and have a blue background. If you have any orange punch cards leftover from previous years, there’s still time to keep them from going to waste.
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 you must turn in the unused punch card when doing so. Partially used punch cards cannot be exchanged.
The orange $12 punch cards will be accepted for use at the Recycling and Solid Waste Center until May 1st, 2021.
