Oswego County Solid Waste Director Frank Visser presented the legislature’s Infrastructure and Facilities Committee with the civil penalty fee schedule recommended by the county’s Solid Waste Management Board.
During the Feb. 28 meeting, Visser said the penalties are intended to simplify the enforcement procedures for violation of the law. They are used as a last resort method to being perpetrators in compliance.
Those found in violation of using a residential transfer station sticker for business waste can receive a fine of $100 for the first offense and a $500 for a recurrent offense.
Multiple household use of a residential sticker can result in a $50 fine for the first offense and $150 for a recurrent offense.
The fine for loads not covered with a tarp is set at $50.
Anyone caught removing a trailer for out-of-county disposal could face a $500 penalty for the first offense and a $2,000 fine for any subsequent offense.
