Monitoring and Enforcement Mechanism*


Every solid waste transport unit used to transport solid waste to a disposal area within St. Clair County shall affix the markings "SCC" followed by a space followed by the permit number assigned to the transporter pursuant to Part 110 of this Regulation. The markings required by this section shall meet all of the following requirements:

· To be painted on or permanently attached to each side of the solid waste transport unit;
· To be plain vertical block characters not less than three inches in height;
· To be contrasted with the color of the background and be distinctly visible and legible for the duration of the licensing period;
· Have spaces or hyphens that are equal to the width of the letter "S" between the letter and number groupings (example: SCC 000 or SCC-000):
· Read from left to right;
· Not be obscured or hidden by any part of the solid waste transport unit;
· On a solid waste transport unit so designed or configured that a number on the super structure would not be easily visible, the markings may be painted on or attached to removable plates that are firmly and permanently attached to each side of the unit. This shall be enforced by a County Law Enforcement Officer.


· The citizen is a natural person, and
· The solid waste material was generated by that person and not collected from other sources, and
· That person does not receive compensation or other remuneration from another person for the transportation or disposal of said solid waste, and
