In order to get your two free dumps you must have a property tax bill or water bill and a government issued ID or driver’s license to present to the scale house attendant (NO EXCEPTIONS). Registrations and electric bills will not be accepted. Residential owners must be physically present with their load in order to use their free dumps. After using your free dumps you are eligible for a 30% discount.
