Grays Harbor County residents will see an increase in the LeMay transfer station rate starting in January.
The Grays Harbor County Commissioners passed an administrative rate increase of $1.46 per ton at the central transfer station.
Commissioner Wes Cormier said during the meeting that they should at least ask LeMay to pay the full B&O tax instead of splitting it with the county as per their contract.
The tonnage fee will also see an additional increase of $2.81 that the county is obligated to provide due the current contract with LeMay.
With both fees starting on January 1st of 2018 the cost per ton will go from $96.73 to $101.00 and LeMay says the average homeowner with every other week garbage service will be impacted by about $0.29 per month.
