The accuracy of our vehicle scales is vital to the way we do business. Our revenue is based on the weight of the material we receive. It’s how we charge our customers, how we determine the amount of space taken up by garbage and how we plan for the future of the landfill.
That’s why we routinely have the scales at the landfill and transfer stations calibrated. We contract with Charlotte Scale Company, Inc. They are certified by the State of North Carolina and all weight certificates can be traced to N.I.S.T. (The National Institute of Standards and Technology).
