"What we’re doing is eliminating fees for much of our e-waste and large appliances. This is our way of encouraging customers to bring the items into the right disposable facility rather than just dumping them on the side of the road."

Chris Andis is with the county’s Waste Management and Recycling Department. As part of the new fee schedule, you can also dump up to four car tires for free. 

However, flat fees for pickup trucks are going up from $15 to $20. Andis says the higher fee will help the department cover costs and provide better customer service.
