Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) Stickers: PAYT Stickers are for use by both Rockport Residents and Business Owners whose businesses are established in Rockport. The purchase of a PAYT Sticker is the most cost effective way for trash disposal for most Residents and Business Owners. You have access to recycling and the swap shop as usual, but you only pay for the trash that you throw away by purchasing PAYT Bags to contain the trash that you dispose of into the solid waste trailers. PAYT Bags can be purchased at Town Hall, Rockport Market, and Ace Hardware. The PAYT Bags will not be sold online or by mail. The cost of a PAYT Sticker is $55 for any Rockport Business and for Residents under 65 years of age and $45 for Senior Residents 65 and older. Additional PAYT Stickers can be purchased for other vehicles garaged at the same household at a cost of $10 for each additional sticker. Additional stickers must be ordered on the same application as the full price PAYT Sticker. The PAYT stickers are valid through May 31, .
Transfer Station Flat Fee Stickers: Transfer Station Flat Fee Stickers can be purchased in lieu of a PAYT Sticker by those Rockport Business Owners and Rockport Residents that may tend to throw away a significant amount of trash each year. Flat Fee Sticker Holders are still required to contain their solid waste in other types of bags to prevent wind swept loose trash from littering the Transfer Station and are still subject to the requirements to recycle glass, metal, recyclable plastics, cardboard and newspapers that are designated as recyclable materials into the recycling compactors. Flat Fee Stickers must be affixed to the windshield of the registered vehicle to be valid for entry into the Transfer Station and will not be laminated for use by others. The cost of the Flat Fee sticker is $250 for both Residents and Business Owners. Senior (65+) discount does not apply to the Flat Fee Stickers. Please purchase a PAYT Sticker to utilize the senior discount rate. Additional Flat Fee Stickers can be purchased for other vehicles garaged at the same household at a cost of $10 for each additional sticker.
