Solid Waste Department News

As of July 2007, the Solid Waste Department implemented a solid waste household fee to cover the cost of disposal to the citizens. If you have a sticker and paid the fee, you are allowed to take your bagged household waste to the sites and landfill. If you do not have a sticker then you have to go to the landfill and pay for your load. Bulky items, i.e. furniture, toys, loose trash, construction and demolition waste, will be weighed at the scales and you pay the cost of the load.

Transfer Station Minimum Fee

All loads crossing the scale at the Transfer Station, also known as the Landfill, on Sugartown Road will be charged a minimum fee of $8. Please remember to tarp or otherwise cover all loads to avoid unintentional littering and safe driving practices. As a reminder, if you bring anything to the landfill other than bagged household waste with a sticker then there is a charge for it. If you need more stickers, they are available at the Tax Collector's office in the Court House. There is a maximum of 3 stickers per household.

These changes are being established after considerable study and are needed in order that the Yadkin County Solid Waste Program can become more self supporting and better serve all of our customers in as fair a manner as possible. Thank you for your help and cooperation!
