Wisconsin garbage tax more than doubles
Wisconsin residents may be thinking twice before tossing things into the trash.
With the signing of the budget bill on June 29, garbage tipping fees increased from $5.60 per ton to $12.70 per ton. That brings Wisconsin's fee more in line with tipping fees in adjoining states.
The fee increase will take effect in two steps. Starting July 1, a $4.10 hike was implemented. The final $3 increase will take effect next month, starting Oct. 1.
