The Chartwell Solid Waste Group will be releasing the first of its annual reports on construction and demolition waste gate rates trends on August 1. These reports will be analyzing annual gate rate changes that occurred between 2008 and 2007.
Overall, the US-wide statistics, based on over 1000 landfills accepting demolition wastes, is that gate rates raised in 2008 by a nation waste average of $1.21 per ton. This represents an increase of approximately four per cent over previous years. This raised the national average gate rate to over $40 per ton.
As is typically the case, the movement in gate rate changes varied in both amount and participation from state to state. In the states completed to date, the gate rate trends range from isolated upward movement (one landfill in state) to significant upward (more than one third of surveyed landfills). Some isolated instances of gate rates being decreased by individual facilities were found.
The regional reports that are being release include many states that rank nationally with the highest gate rates. Region One has the distinction of having some of the highest region and state gate rates in the United States.
