 Advanced Disposal Fees (ADF) for Businesses

County staff will verify that businesses have the three essential program components in place:

            1.  Hauling contract for recyclables
            2.  Sufficient bins for collection of recyclables

  • A, B                         $100.00
  • C                             $250.00
  • D,E                          $500.00
