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 $5.00, effective July 1, 2023.

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, waste that contains banned materials, or situations that require site preparation in advance of receiving the material.
