Madison County requires all waste hauling, recycling collection, and landscape waste trucks that collect waste from a Madison County site or dispose of waste in a Madison County Landfill to obtain a yearly permit. Permits are good through May 31 and must be renewed prior to hauling waste to the landfill. Permit stickers must be affixed to the left side of the windshield of all vehicles. The permit fee is $60 per truck. Failure to display a current sticker clearly in the window of the truck may result in a fine being levied against the truck owner. In addition, trucks are regularly checked at the landfill and are subject to refusal.
The County’s Residential Recycling Ordinance also requires haulers of waste from residential dwellings to provide a material separation plan demonstrating compliance with the recycling ordinance. The issuance of a waste truck permit may be withheld until compliance with the recycling ordinance is achieved.
Please note that municipal-owned trucks are required to obtain a sticker, but the fee is waived for municipal vehicles.
