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. The cost per ton is $36.50.

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.  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 $1.25 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 $6.28 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 $0.90 for each 20-pound increment, $4.53 for every 100 pounds.
Asbestos Waste Type 27A is $1.74 for each 20-pound increment, $8.70 for every 100 pounds. There is a $.50 handling charge per bag for asbestos.
