Trash Permits

Our goal is to make solid waste services “pay-as-we-go.” The money we collect for permits directly supports the three permit-required courtesy sites. The permit fee currently is $100 for one vehicle per year and this may be prorated based on when the permit is purchased. It is $25 for each additional vehicle.
