Municipal Solid Waste Regional Gate Fee Reports
In the early 1990s, Chartwell Information Publishers began collecting and publishing the results of surveys of gate rate charged at municipal solid waste facilities.  When The Envirobiz Group Inc. took over Chartwell operations in the fall of 2005, it was determined that survey effort needed to be enhanced to provide a more representative cross-section of gate rates across the United States. The Envirobiz Group Inc. now provides much more detailed examination of state wide and interstate gate rates and trends than anytime in its history; these reports are now provided in the Chartwell Solid Waste Digest.

There are times when more detailed market data is needed than trends in average and median gate rates provided in the Chartwell Solid Waste Digest; our Municipal Solid Waste Market Reports help solid waste professionals and stakeholders with these more detail reports.  These detailed reports range in geographic area from Chartwell’s “Radius Market Report” for intrastate markets to larger geographic areas involving multiple states (or even nationwide). The Envirobiz Group can customize the geographical area to meet most any customer’s needs with the United States.

One Hundred Mile Radius Study:
Current Municipal Solid Waste Gate Rates

The most basic report package, popular with customers, is “The Hundred Mile Market Radius Report”. The report package consists of two basic elements;

  • a map showing the location of MSW facilities within the 100 mile radius
  • a Microsoft Excel Worksheet with facility information.

The standard worksheet contains contact information for each facility on the map and the municipal solid waste gates rates from the most recent Chartwell facility survey. In almost all cases, the gate rates provided on the Excel file will have been from survey work done within the past twelve months. The cost of this basic 100 Mile MSW Market Radius Report is $500 per report.

The Hundred Mile Market Radius Map is provided as a PDF file. The scale of the map can be ordered as either wall poster size or smaller report scale. The data in the Microsoft Excel Worksheet file is matched to the Map with a facility map number. The worksheet can be sorted (by the customer) through the Microsoft Excel software’s sorting functions.

Other Market Report Options

Option #1: Larger Geographical Coverage: More Than 100 Miles, Statewide or Interstate Coverage

The state wide and interstate regional studies are basically an increase in geographical coverage from the one hundred mile radius.  The standard worksheet is the same as provided in The One Hundred Mile Radius Study. The mapping becomes more customized to the specific needs of the customer. Prices based on scope of extended coverage.

Option #2: Gate Rate Changes at Individual Facilities – Present vs. Previous Year

This option provides stakeholders with gate rate changes that have occurred between the most recent survey effort and the previous year.  The most recent year being defined as the gate rates from survey within the past twelve months verses the previous survey at the same facility (ranging from 12 to 24 months previously). The gate rates are provided in the same easy to use format so that the customer can sort the data as needed. This enhance report can be provided for individual landfills within the basic one hundred mile radius, state wide, and interstate region.

Option #3: Gate Rate Changes at Individual Facilities – Present vs. Client's Benchmark Year

This option provides stakeholders with gate rate changes that have occurred between the most recent survey effort and ta year dating back to 2000.  In as much as many facilities do not change their pricing on an annual basis, this option provides a different perspective of gate rate changes than our year to previous year comparison. The gate rates are provided in the same easy to use format so that the customer can sort the data as needed. This enhance report can be provided for individual landfills within the basic one hundred mile radius, state wide, and interstate region.
