Cash payments: Cash payments are accepted, only from Monmouth County residents dumping personal waste from their primary residence.

We only accept cash or personal checks. You must provide a valid Drivers License, current registration to your personal vehicle, and (trailer if applicable) when pulling onto the Scales.

All others must establish a pre-paid account with the Finance Department in the Reclamation Center Scales Office 732-683-8686 Ext 5600 or 5601, or click on the link below to download a copy of the pre-paid account application. There is a return check charge of $25.00 (paid in cash) for all bounced checks. All companies that have multiple returned checks will only be able to fund their account with cash, or a Bank Cashiers check. Any delinquent accounts will not be allowed to dump until the account has sufficient funds in it.

Grass is accepted for disposal, separate from all other wastes. $3 per car or $36.50 per ton for trucks. Station Wagons, Minivans and SUV-type vehicles qualify for the car rate when grass is behind the rear-most seat only!

The landfill utilizes "Vehicle Scales", which record weights in 20-pound increments. The vehicle with the trash is weighed in. Next the resident dumps the waste at a specified area and then the vehicle returns to the Scale Complex, where the vehicle is weighed out.  Payment is based on a calculation of the difference between the two weights.  With the exception of the $3 flat rate for Grass (see above), All rates are "pro-rated", meaning that payment is based on the amount of weight disposed. There is no minimum or maximum. 
It will cost $1.15 for each 20-pound increment of Bulky and Construction-type wastes.  As an example, if a resident were to dump 100 pounds of Waste Type 13 or 13C (i.e. old furniture, wood, sheetrock, tile, old light fixtures, cabinets, etc.); the cost would be $5.76 for every 100-pounds dumped. 
Household Waste Type 10 (regular bagged food-stuff wastes, which would normally go out to the curb for weekly pickup) is $0.82 for each 20-pound increment, $4.11 for every 100 pounds.
Asbestos Waste Type 27A is $1.76 for each 20-pound increment, $3.80 for every 100 pounds. There is a $.50 handling charge per bag for asbestos.
