Ouch! Steep Price Increase on Bulky Waste Disposal in this Berkshire Town
If you are a resident of the Town of Sheffield, expect to pay more to dispose of your bulky waste as the price has increased effective immediately.
In a press release that was sent to us from the Town of Sheffield regarding the town's transfer station, it was noted that residents will now have to pay $20 per bulky waste coupon. The previous price was $10 per coupon.
Why such a dramatic increase in the price of coupons?
The town reports that the hike in price per coupon is due to the fact that the cost for Sheffield to dispose of bulky items has also dramatically increased.
Sheffield residents will have to pay even more money for a contaminated mattress, box spring, or couch.
Yes, that's correct. If you bring one of these contaminated items to the Sheffield Transfer Station, you will be required to supply two coupons. Keep those items clean, rip and dirt free and you'll save some cash. The town also notes that when the bulky waste container is emptied, Sheffield is charged $40 per mattress, box spring, or couch on top of the regular disposal costs.
As you can see, the price increase is obviously frustrating for many but it's important to keep in mind that this is out of the town's control.
