Effective today, Jan. 3, the Self-Deposit Station, at 1106 Blake Ave, will be changing its user fees from a daily user fee to a per visit user fee.
The new user fee will be $3 per visit.
Making this change will help sustain the facility, a valuable service we are proud to provide, and will continue to.
The self-deposit station will likely never be self-sufficient, and that’s OK.
It costs us more than $175,000 to operate the facility each year, and we recover less than half of that cost through fees. We need to find ways to reasonably cover that expense in an era of rising costs and limited sources of city revenue, and I think this fee change is reasonable.
Remember, each home owner also receives a free special pickup each year.
Self Deposit Station winter hours (December 1-March 31) are …
- Tuesday and Friday 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
- Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
- CLOSED Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday
