All loads of municipal solid waste (except residential curbside pickup) containing non-separated controlled waste or recyclable materials will be assessed a tipping fee which is two times the regular fee of the most expensive material in the load. This fee will be charged for the entire load. Plus, an additional $100/hr for handling and separation by site staff.
The weight of materials delivered to the landfill or transfer station site, on which fees are based, will be determined by:
- Measuring the weight on the scale provided at the landfill or transfer station site; or
- In the event that the scale provided is not operational, weight will be estimated by the scale attendant.
