New landfill permit gives Montrose Twp. residents more flexibility

MONTROSE TWP. – The Montrose Township Board recently established new Brent Run Landfill dumping permits for Montrose Township residents. The annual permit is a 12-hole punch card for the year. It replaces the old system that required residents obtain a new pass each time they needed to dump.

Montrose Township Supervisor Mark Emmendorfer explained that since the township office is closed on Fridays, it sometimes became an inconvenience for residents who wanted to dump over the weekend. The new system should help solve that.

The Brent Run Landfill allows Montrose Township residents to dump household waste only. Emmendorfer is aware that some contractors have been taking advantage of the situation and brought construction waste, often using a township pass. And while Brent Run has often been lenient with township residents, it has the right to refuse any load.

Since the new permit has 12 punches, when residents use all 12 punches, that’s all of their free dumping for the year. Emmendorfer explained that the permit holders can use their punch cards all in one month, if they wish, but that would be their quota of free dumps for the year.

The new Brent Run landfill annual permit goes into effect Jan. 1, 2018.
