Landscape Waste Facility
Any person (including residents where no charge applies) or contractor hauling landscape waste to the Potts Lane facility must first go to the Paris City Hall, located at 206 South Central Ave, to ask for a free residential permit to pay the appropriate commercial disposal fees.
Any person or contractor hauling landscape waste to the Potts Lane facility must first go to City Hall and pay the appropriate fees based on the truck’s size or trailer’s hauling capacity and get a receipt presented to the facility supervisor before unloading. Any person or entity with multiple loads hauled to the facility may purchase a sufficient amount of receipts to facilitate direct trips to the landscape facility.
The following fees are based on the hauling capacity of the vehicle. Upon paying the appropriate fee, the City Clerk’s office will issue a duplicate receipt to the customer. The customer will be required to surrender one copy of the Potts Lane custodian’s receipt before unloading and keep the second copy for their records.
To accommodate a situation where multiple loads will be hauled to the facility, then that person or entity may purchase a sufficient amount of receipts to facilitate direct trips to the Potts Lane disposal site.
