Landscape/Lawn Maintenance Service Exemption Agreement

As a condition of receiving a compost certification I, the undersigned, have read all the enclosed materials and hereby acknowledge and agree to the following:

1. The landscape and/or yard maintenance company must be approved by the City and meet the following requirements:

a. The landscape and/or yard maintenance company must dispose of yard debris at a yard debris recycling facility.

b. Landscape and yard maintenance companies located in the City of Troutdale must have a license from the City of Troutdale. Those companies located outside Troutdale, but working in the City, may have EITHER a Troutdale business license OR a Metro business license.

2. If the landscape and/or yard maintenance firm disposes of yard debris at a location other than a yard debris recycling facility, the company will be removed from the list of approved landscape and/or yard maintenance companies.

3. If the landscape and/or yard maintenance company is removed from the approved list, customers receiving a yard debris exemption will receive a notice from the City. The customer will have two weeks from the date of the notice to notify the City if they have contracted with another approved firm.

4. If the customer quits using a landscape/lawn maintenance service, then the City or the hauler should be notified within on week. Once notified the hauler will reinstate the customer with full monthly service including yard debris.

5. If the customer does not notify the City that they have contracted with a new firm approved by the City, service will be fully reinstated. This will include yard debris service.

6. The hauler will place the “WE COMPOST” decal on my garbage can in such a way that it is visible from the street.

7. If yard debris is placed out for collection as part of the yard debris recycling program, I understand that the charge for yard debris will be added back onto the monthly solid waste bill and I cannot apply for a Landscape/Lawn Maintenance Service Exemption for one year.

8. Yard debris SHALL NOT be placed in garbage cans. If yard debris is found in the customer’s garbage can, the charge for yard debris will be added back onto the monthly solid waste bill. The customer cannot apply for a Yard Debris Landscape/Yard Maintenance Service Exemption for one year.

9. Application processing fees are not refundable. I understand that my application for exemption may be denied.

10. Once approved, the monthly rate I pay will be for garbage only. The monthly rate I pay may be adjusted when rates are adjusted.

11. The Landscape/Yard Maintenance Service Exemption and credit is not transferable to another customer or property.
