According to the county website, a resident must obtain a refuse disposal authorization in advance. If an authorization is not obtained, the resident will be charged a prorated fee of $100 per ton of material:
* A resident wishes to use a vehicle other than a car, van or “standard” pick-up (pick-up bed of four by eight feet or less).
* A resident wishes to deliver waste which could be construed to be commercial, whether from a business establishment or from “odd-jobbing” or “handyman” operations.
* A resident has a relative or friend who will be hauling the waste on behalf of the resident and at no cost to the resident.
* A resident wishes to deliver more than two loads in any size vehicle within a week, or more than six loads in a calendar year.
* A resident wishes to deliver an item that is “Restricted Waste” (for example, non-metallic boats or campers).
* A resident wishes to use a commercially marked vehicle. Please note that a disposal authorization is not automatically needed if a resident uses a pick-up sized or style truck rented from U-Haul or a hardware store (these are the only exceptions); however, other conditions that require a refuse disposal authorization (such as number of loads or type of material) still apply.
