The Director of the Department of Solid Waste through local solid waste
management aw, has the authority to revoke a user’s permit to utilize a transfer
station for just cause. Typically, an attendant brings a problem of
noncompliance, unauthorized business use, or non-resident use of
a station to this department’s attention.
Transfer station attendants are advised to write down the permit
sticker number, license plate number, make and model of the ve-
hicle in case of a problem, so this department can match the per-
mit sticker with the individual. Municipal clerks, who sell the
stickers and keep records of permit numbers, are helpful in identi-
fying an abuser. Depending on the infraction, the Director may
issue a warning, or revoke the permit. Revocation is done via let-
ter, with a copy to municipal clerks and station attendants.
Revocation may be permanent, or for the remainder of the year. If
someone whose permit has been revoked attempts to use a station,
they are turned away. In extreme circumstances, the Sheriff’s Department
may be called to escort a revokee out of the station. Anyone
whose permit is revoked should hire a private hauler or utilize curbside
garbage pick up if offered in the municipality.
