Additionally, no person shall drive or move any loaded truck or vehicle upon any county road with direct ingress and egress to any solid waste disposal facility or site operated by the county unless such vehicle and the load therein is covered by canvas or other material providing complete coverage, properly secured, so as to prevent any load, contents or litter from becoming loose, detached or blown from the vehicle, or from dropping or escaping from the vehicle during the movement thereof.



The Solid Waste Transfer Station is operated by Advanced Disposal Services (ADS). The ADS Transfer Station is well-designed to handle waste, traffic, and effectively manages over 150,000 transactions annually involving private and municipal haulers and the general public.

Disposal Charges:

There is a minimum charge of $7.00 for the first 400 pounds of waste materials disposed of at the Transfer Station. Weight in excess of 400 pounds is currently charged at an additional rate of $0.03 per lb.

Certain recyclable materials (tires, used motor oil, used antifreeze, car & truck batteries, and electronic devices) must also cross the scales and do incur the $7.00 minimum charge. Additional charges will be applied for disposal of select items such as tires, propane tanks and other items designated by ADS due to security requirements and extensive handling and expenses required to process and ship these items.
