Effective January 1st, 2022, the price of punch cards will increase to $20 per card.
The Madison County Board of Supervisors determined it was necessary to increase the 2022 punch card fee in order to more fully offset the costs of operating the transfer stations. Residents looking to dispose of household garbage and non-recyclable materials at our transfer stations can purchase punch cards at the Scale House or at local gas stations and businesses around the county. Recyclables including paper, cardboard, accepted plastic/metal/glass containers and scrap metal are free to drop off.
Although punch cards have a 'Please Use By' date, all previous cards (2021 and older) do not expire and will still be honored at the transfer stations. Unused punches are non-refundable. To see a complete list of punch card vendors, please visit: www.madisoncounty.ny.gov/2468/Punch-Card-Vendors
In 2022, the number of punches required for freon-containing units (refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc.) will increase to 5 punches per unit and the maximum number of passenger tires allowed per visit at a transfer station is 4.
