Waiving of tipping fee for Marsh Folly to End Monday November 7th

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

The Ministry of Public Works wishes to inform the public that the tipping fee for Marsh Folly Composting Facility will resume on Monday November 7th.

The tipping fee was waived last month in the aftermath of Hurricane Nicole so that people could dispose of horticultural waste caused by the storm without being burdened financially.

At the Marsh Folly Composting Facility the cost for tipping horticultural waste is $25 per load.

Marsh Folly compost, or "Black Gold" as it is known locally, is free of charge to householders and businesses.  Black Gold is tested on a quarterly basis to ensure it meets the standards set by the Environmental Authority, a non-governmental body responsible for setting and monitoring environmental standards at all the Waste Management's facilities.  Black Gold meets or exceeds the AAA standard set by the USDA for compost products.
