Remember to show your ID

  • Because we don't charge for disposal of your normal household trash and recyclables, residents of neighboring counties frequently try to dispose of their trash at our Transfer Stations.

  • Checking IDs is the most effective way to prevent this illegal disposal and to preserve your tax dollars.

  • If you are a part time resident of our county, please have a copy of your tax bill showing the Solid Waste fee ready to show to the attendant.
