*Starting June 1, 2023, the Truro Transfer Station’s six-month and Swap Shop permit will no longer be available.*

The Swap Shop will remain open during its regular hours of operation; all previously issued six-month and Swap Shop permits will be honored until a renewal is required; weekly and monthly permits are still available with proof of stay in Truro. 
With the rising tonnage costs for solid waste and recycling, DPW Director Cabral recommended, and the Board of Health approved, the elimination of these two permits which will result in approximately $8,000 in permit sales, as well as an added $3,000 in grant funding from the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Fee increases associated with the Transfer Station will not be adjusted at this time but are under consideration for Fiscal Year 2024. The annual permit fee schedule was last adjusted in 2015 and the White Goods/Commercial Tipping fee schedule was adjusted in 2020. Truro’s annual permitting fees are the lowest offered when compared to other towns within Barnstable County operating with the same permitting parameters.
