Commercial Billing Questions
The Solid Waste Division is committed to providing environmentally-sound and cost-effective solid waste disposal and recycling services for Union County residents.
Our funding comes from user fees, the majority of which are paid by private haulers utilizing our transfer station for disposal of Municipal Solid Waste and our landfill for disposal of Construction and Demolition debris. Like many other Union County Public Works functions, we are not funded by tax dollars, rather the Solid Waste Division is a self-sustaining organization dedicated to fulfilling our mission statement.
