Self-haulers would be required to identify and weigh their solid waste when delivering it to the Transfer Station.  Self-haulers are prohibited from delivering it to the rural sites.  If commercial solid waste fee are not paid on a timely basis, the Board of Commissioners can direct the Auditor’s office to attach them to the property taxes, as a special assessment, payable the following year.
