A Tipping Fee is a fee paid by anyone who disposes of waste in a landfill. Usually, this fee is based on the weight of the waste per ton. This serves in helping with the maintenance and other operating costs of a landfill. Since 1995, Barker Lemar Engineering Consultants have developed a State of Iowa Tipping Fee Map; compiling data from facilities across the state. Pick up your tipping fee map at the Annual Fall Iowa Society of Solid Waste Operations (ISOSWO) Conference or download an electronic copy below.
