NOTE:  The fees outlined below are “per ton” rates.  All customers will be weighed in and out to determine their net weight.  As an example, if a customer’s loaded vehicle weighs in at 4,200 pounds (gross weight) and weighs out empty at 4,000 pounds (tare weight), their “net weight” would be 200 pounds.   Fees will be pro-rated based on the customer’s net weight.  In the above example, the customer delivered 200 pounds (one-tenth of a ton) of construction debris, so their charge would be $5.00 (0.1 tons X $50).  There is a minimum charge, which is based on 20 pounds (0.01 tons).
