What services do I get for the solid waste fee listed on my property tax billing?

The annual solid waste fee supports the operations of the entire department.  This includes the landfill, two full-service transfer stations, and 12 rural residential collection sites.

The intent of the residential solid waste fee is for normal household waste, created by day to day residential living. The fee is based on a residential lifestyle that creates normal waste not to exceed ninety-six (96) gallons per week per household.

The following are examples of waste not covered under the residential solid waste fee:

  • Appliances
  • Carpet
  • Construction or Demolition Materials
  • Furniture
  • Household Hazardous Waste
  • Large Bulky Items 
  • Roofing 
  • Vehicle Batteries
  • Tires
  • Wood or Wood Products

These wastes and others materials may be subject to additional charges.
