Beltrami County Commercial Solid Waste Registration
Under the guidelines set in the Beltrami County Solid Waste Service Fee Ordinance, all commercial business establishments must register with the Beltrami County Solid Waste Department within thirty (30) days of starting business. Commercial businesses must pay a Solid Waste Service fee based on individual usage. The fee is increased as your Solid Waste tonnage increases. This is usually reviewed on a monthly basis. The minimum fee is $32.06 per calendar year quarter. The usage is determined by Transfer Station records and by tonnage reported to us by your hauler. If businesses elect to self haul their Solid Waste, a haulers license must be obtained from the Solid Waste Director in the Planning and Zoning office, located at the Beltrami County Office Complex at Seventh Street & Minnesota Avenue in Bemidji. They would be required to identify and weigh their Solid Waste when delivering it to the Transfer Station. They are prohibited from delivering it to the rural sites. If these fees are not paid on timely basis, the Board of Commissioners can direct the Auditorís office to attach them to the property taxes, as a special assessment, payable the following year.
If a business ceases to do business in Beltrami County, it is their responsibility to notify the Beltrami County Solid Waste Department and fill out the necessary form. If this procedure is not followed, the business will continue to be invoiced based on previous tonnage history until the proper procedure is followed.
