Regulated Recyclable Materials Penalty Fee
C & D waste loads containing Regulated Recyclable Materials (i.e. corrugated cardboard, clean wood, and scrap metal), are subject to a penalty fee. More than 1/3 cubic yard of banned materials per load will be subject to double tip fee. In addition to this fee, mixed load violators are subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $500.00 per offense in accordance with Section 34-77(4) of the Orange County, NC Code of Ordinances.
The Orange County Solid Waste Management Department offers reduced tip fees for these Regulated Recyclable Materials if they are separated for recycling prior to delivery to the Orange County Landfill.
