     Customers are allowed one free drop-off per month with a copy of their current utility bill; after the free drop-off, a charge of $35.00 per ton will be charged to account.

     County residents may also use the Transfer Station for a charge of $35.00 per ton. 

     Landlords and rental companies will not be given the free drop-off for each property they own regardless of if each property is listed in their name with billing.

     Each drop-off will require a weight ticket and customer form to be filled out.

     Courtesy letters will no longer be mailed to property owners and tenants for piles put out for pick up by City of Bainbridge Sanitation Department. Once a pile is reported it will be put on the list for removal and scheduled to be removed no more than one week after reported. Sanitation Department drivers and Marshal’s office employees will be reporting piles when seen.

     When the Transfer Station opened to the public on October 1, 2014, customers were allowed one free drop-off a month.  At this time, the Sanitation Department stopped the free annual roadside pick-up of bulk items. 

     Any piles that are mixed with yard debris will be charged an additional $50.00 separation service charge if the Sanitation Department is sent to remove pile. 

     All information about the Sanitation Department and different types of refuse is listed online in the City Ordinance Codes.
