LIVERMORE — Residents will pay more to dispose of bulky waste and demolition debris at the town Transfer Station.

Selectpersons unanimously voted to accept the new prices presented by Transfer Station Supervisor Juanita Jordan-Bryant on Monday night, interim Town Clerk Jean Tardif said Wednesday.

The new fees went into effect immediately. The increases range from $2 to $24.

Jordan-Bryant looked over her budget and realized the fees didn’t cover the town’s cost of disposal, she said.

Livermore began accepting bulky waste at the Transfer Station in January 2013. A contract with Jay for bulky waste disposal at its transfer station expired Dec. 31, 2012.

The list of items showing the old and new fees is: sleep sofa, $15 to $25; chair $8 to $10; folding chair, $4 (a category not on the previous list); sofa or love seat, $5 to $15; each piece of a sectional, $8 to $12; recliner, $8 to $12; motorized recliner or lift chair, $17 (an additional fee will be charged if there is an additional motor; there was no separate price previously).

Also, crib mattress, $8; single-bed mattress and box spring, $8 each; full-size mattress and box spring, $10 each; queen-size box spring and mattress, $13 each; king-size box spring and mattress, $15 each.

The cost to dispose of an automobile bucket seat doubled from $6 to $12. A complete bench seat will cost $20 instead of $12.

The disposal fees for clean lumber — not pressure treated — is $14 a yard, an increase of $8.

Tire and appliance fees remained the same.

Among the other fees are:

* Pressure-treated wood/wood waste: 4- by 6-foot truck bed (level load) $36, 4- by 8- by 2-foot (level): $33.

* Bulky demolition — mixed, for example Sheetrock, siding, building debris (no asphalt shingles): $40 per yard.

* Porcelain sink: $7

* Porcelain toilet: $5 a piece or $10 complete unit

* Fiberglass tubs/shower stalls: $12

* Garage doors: $48

* Snowmobile tracks: $10
