Bartow County residents may dispose of up to one ton (2000 pounds) of solid waste generated from their homes without charge. There are several limitations to this rule. The first is that we will accept large loads only at the landfill (the Collection Centers are available for small loads of solid waste that are generated on a daily or weekly basis) where normal tipping fees will be applied after the first ton per trip to the landfill. The second limitation is that we request the homeowner to bring the solid waste to the landfill. If a subcontractor is completing a job at your home, you must come to the landfill with the subcontractor or they will be charged the appropriate tipping fee since it is not from their house and the disposal is part of their business. Third, solid waste generated from the operation of a rental property will be subject to normal tipping fees since it is a business.
All loads must be tarped or tied down. Most of the litter found along our highways is a direct result of solid waste falling or blowing out of vehicles. We will not accept hazardous waste.
Commercial haulers and businesses must be permitted annually and have an account with the County. Permits must be displayed permanently on the vehicle and boxes.
