Accounts, Billing & Payment Options
All tipping fees are expected to be paid at the time of disposal, unless other arrangements have been made through the County Scalehouse. All customers are advised that leaving the Resource Recovery Complex without paying their disposal fee constitutes a theft of services and is punishable by law.
Persons transporting only their own solid waste in small vehicles i.e. pick-ups, having a registered gross vehicle weight of 9,000 pounds or less may utilize the facilities and pay for services as they are rendered.
Homeowners can pay their disposal fees at the Scalehouse by the following options: cash, certified check, money order or credit card. (MasterCard, Visa, Discover or AMEX)
Upon entering the scales, all homeowners shall provide the weighmaster with:
- motor vehicle registration card; and
- completed Origin and Disposal (O&D) Form (PDF)
All registered haulers are encouraged to open an account at the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex for waste disposal. "Registered hauler" for purposes of these guidelines, is defined as a person who is in possession of all pertinent permits, licenses and registrations that may be required by the New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) for the collection, transportation, storage or disposal of solid waste or source separated recyclable materials. Accounts can be opened at the Scalehouse located at 22000 Burlington Columbus Road, Mansfield, NJ 08022.
The following information will be required for haulers to open an account and use the disposal facilities:
- Valid NJDEP Collector/Hauler Decal and registration card or Temporary Letter of Registration for each vehicle.

For billing purposes, two categories of haulers have been established by the County: public agencies and private haulers. The terms for each category of user are listed below:
- Public Agencies - All public agencies will be billed monthly.
- Private Haulers - Private haulers have three options of payment for waste disposal. The County will provide a monthly statement to haulers upon request.
All users who deliver fifty tons or less of solid waste to the Complex per week shall pay for services at the time services are to be rendered. The only acceptable forms of payment for services are business checks, cash, certified checks, credit cards, (MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express) money orders or bank wires (call 609-499-5300 for wiring instructions).
Established customers that deliver fifty or more tons of solid waste per week will be billed for services on a monthly basis by the County.
All invoices must be paid within thirty (30) calendar days from the date of the invoice. A late payment charge of 1.5% of the invoiced amount will be assessed on invoices that are more than forty-five (45) days past due.
In accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:26H-4.7(c), the County shall have the right to require that any customer establish and maintain an advance payment or escrow account.
