The fees outlined below are “per ton” rates and include the $2 per ton North Carolina (NC) Solid Waste Tax. 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 $5.20 (0.1 tons × $52). There is a minimum charge, which is based on 20 pounds (0.01 tons or 52 cents).
Landfill staff may assess an additional surcharge on waste that creates a nuisance condition or requires specialized equipment rental to process, “Nuisance conditions” may include excessive dust, extreme odors, or situations that require site preparation in advance of receiving the material.
