Fee Exemptions

What is a Fee Exemption?

At times the landfills require specific materials in order to sustain daily operations and will offer gate fee exemptions for those items.

Qualifications

To qualify for exemptions: Loads must be in a two-axle, self-unloading dump truck or larger, or trailer with dump capacity. No hand unloading for exemptions.
