All vehicles entering SWA disposal
facilities or transfer stations will be weighed, and for cash
customers, a deposit will be collected. If you have any
questions about where to dump, the Weighmaster will be happy to
assist you. At the landfill there are also Spotters to direct
you. When finished, proceed to the exit. All vehicles
for which no tare weight is on file are required to weigh out to
obtain a tare weight and the transaction is finalized.

Unsecured loads pose a threat to public
safety and the environment. The SWA requires that all loads be
properly secured. All loads not properly secured, as
determined by the Weighmaster, will be charged as Unsecured Load Fee
of $10.00 to help defray the SWA's cost of providing litter control
on the roads surrounding the SWA facilities. Your help and
understanding in this matter is appreciated.
Contaminated or Mixed Loads
Mixed loads (i.e. trash mixed with
construction debris or vegetation mixed with trash, sand or other
contamination) will be charged at the higher applicable rate.
If, for example, a visual inspection of the load by the Weighmaster
or a Spotter uncovers drywall or concrete in a vegetation load, you
will be charged the current Building Debris rate.
Please see the
tipping fee schedule
for fee information and debris definitions.
