Is there a charge for using the landfill?Citizens that pay the “sanitation assessment fee” for household collection can dispose of “normal home-generated refuse” at no charge. Inasmuch as the Sanitation Department does not collect building materials, stumps, dirt, rocks, concrete products, and tires, these items would result in a charge for disposal. Also, large amounts of tree limbs would result in a charge since these would be the result of a commercial tree trimmer, landscaper, or building contractor operation. There is a charge for dead animals.
