All loads entering the landfill must be covered and secured. All vehicles disposing of waste must pay a tipping fee. Upon entering the landfill, each vehicle must stop at the scale house to be weighed before being directed to the proper location for disposal. All loads are subject to random screening to prevent landfill or groundwater contamination by illegal or hazardous materials. Waste transported in pick-up trucks or on small trailers must be confined within the bed of the truck / trailer. Scale operators will determine whether a load is in compliance with federal, state and local guidelines.
When paying with cash, a cash deposit is required at weigh in. The cash deposit amount is determined by the gross weight of the load:
Gross Weight Minimum Deposit
Under 6,500 lbs. $20
6,500 - 9,999 lbs. $40
10,000 - 14,999 lbs. $60
