Sec. 10-31. General provisions.

 

(a)   No garbage, refuse, or other waste material shall be accepted at the transfer station from the solid waste jurisdiction of a governing body which has not joined the Northeast Nebraska Solid Waste Coalition unless acceptance of such waste is approved by the Northeast Nebraska Solid Waste Coalition governing board.

 

(b)   The fees provided for in this article may, in whole or in part, be waived by order of the mayor when, in the discretion of the mayor, the public health, safety, and welfare of the community would be enhanced by the waiving of such fees because of city-wide cleanup or improvement campaigns, or because of fire, flood, tornado, or other event, or series of events, causing extensive damage to the homes and property of the residents of the community. This section shall not be construed to permit the mayor to waive fees for garbage and refuse licensees under this chapter that dispose of garbage, refuse and waste materials for hire at either the city transfer station or the Northeast Nebraska Solid Waste Coalition landfill in the normal course of their business.
