Why am I being charged a solid waste fee?
All businesses in the County will be charged a commercial solid waste fee per month. It is for the availability of the transfer facility/landfill to dispose of commercial trash.

Why do we have to pay now, when before we weren’t being charged anything?
Nothing can be put in the ground anymore. All trash has to be transported to another facility for disposal. Once your business has been added to our data base your business will be charged monthly.
