Changes and Reminders
Fee Increases effective July 1, 2022
Dear Valued Customer,
After carefully analyzing increases in overhead costs, the Iredell County Board of Commissioners has approved raising the tonnage rate $3 per ton. This increase is necessary to continue to provide quality service to the citizens of Iredell County. The fee increase will be imposed on non-friable asbestos, commercial, demolition and pallets. Cost of disposal at the Statesville Landfill will be $43/ton, which includes NC Solid Waste tax. Cost of disposal at the Mooresville Transfer Station will be $53/ton, which includes NC Solid Waste Tax and Transportation fee. The fee increase will go into effect as of July 1, 2022. For any questions or concerns, please contact our office Monday through Friday 7:30am-4pm at (704) 878-5430.
Our goal is to remain safe and accident free at our Solid Waste Facilities. As a reminder, all haulers delivering waste to our facilities are required to wear highly visible clothing. Vests may be checked out at the scale house if necessary. It is equally important that drivers follow instructions of the Solid Waste staff, including directives on where to dispose of waste. This is critical in the landfill, where the working face is often small and can become congested. Please help us keep everyone safe!
All materials delivered to any Iredell County Solid Waste Facility must be properly loaded and secured. Materials not covered is a violation of section 12-9 of the solid waste ordinance and is subject to a $50 civil penalty per offense.
