Yes: A sticker allows you to bring your household refuse and recycling to the dump instead of paying to have it collected from your home.
You will still have to pay a fee for disposal (except for recycling): In Edgartown it's $4 for a 32-gallon bag or barrel, $2 for a smaller bag. Other refuse is weighed at a cost of $165 a ton.
Here's a round-up of "landfill" (dump) sticker costs around Martha's Vineyard, from which all trash is shipped to New Bedford for disposal:
- Aquinnah: $10, available at the landfill.
- Chilmark: $10 at the drop off station on Tabor House Road or in summer at the beach sticker office.
- Edgartown: $10, available at the landfill on the West Tisbury Road. Free to residents 65 and older.
- Oak Bluffs: $25, $10 for age 60 and older, available at the drop off on Pennsylvania Avenue.
- Tisbury: $25 at the DPW on High Point Lane.
- West Tisbury: $10 at the transfer station on Old Stage Road.
These vehicle stickers are limited to one per household.
Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven also offer curbside collection for a $5 per barrel sticker charge in Oak Bluffs, $4.50 in Vineyard Haven; recycling is collected at no charge.
