Solid Waste Tax


The Solid Waste Tax is paid by municipalities and facilities certified by the Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) for waste delivered for disposal or incineration, and by haulers permitted by ANR to haul waste to out-of-state facilities. The tax is computed monthly, based on the number of tons of waste delivered for disposal or incineration by municipalities or certified facilities, or waste hauled by permitted haulers to out-of-state facilities.
