It’s going to cost more to dump your garbage at the Merrick landfill site. Among the increases are an additional $10 if you’re hauling a two-wheeled trailer filled with junk. Tipping fees are going up to $87 a ton in April which is a $3 increase and then up to $90 next January. This year the landfill is opening a new cell at a cost of $2.5 million. Overall, Merrick has about 19 years of life left to it before a new site has to be opened.
