Solid Waste Management Plan Update 2012

Effective November 1, 2019

• All new customers to the landfill that wish to establish a charge account with the Solid Waste Department must fill out an application for a charge account.  The customer will also need to put a deposit amount down that is equal to two (2) months normal or expected billings at the landfill.  Charge account applications can be found online on the County of Moore website under the Public Works Department, forms tab.
• Any customer that is on the “Over 60 Day” list will need to pay their outstanding balance in full before accessing the landfill.  A partial payment will not allow the customer access to the landfill. 
• If a customer is on the “Over 60 Day” list twice within a twelve (12) month period, the customer will no longer have a charge account with the Solid Waste Department.  Their outstanding balance will need to be paid in full before accessing the landfill.  All future charges will need to be paid at time of service.

Scrap Tire Certification

The North Carolina Division of Waste Management administers a comprehensive program to manage scrap tires. This program prevents illegal dumping of tires by providing an infrastructure to safely collect, store, and recycle scrap tires.
An advance disposal fee is charged when new tires are sold. The proceeds are distributed to each county to pay for collection and recycling of tires. Each load of more than five tires must be accompanied by a completed SCRAP TIRE CERTIFICATION FORM for free disposal eligibility.
