What are the general rules?
Once the permit(s) are purchased, they are your responsibility. If they are lost or stolen, Wicomico County will not be held liable. You would need to purchase new permits at the same price of $55. The permit must be attached to your windshield. It can be placed on either side of the windshield in the lower corner or on the windshield behind the rear view mirror (as long as it is not in a shaded area). If the permit is not attached to the windshield, you will not be allowed to unload.

The permit is registered to a certain vehicle and the permit number must match that vehicle. They cannot be transferred from one vehicle to another. The Tag Number from the registration card will be put on your permit. We reserve the right to view all registration cards. This permit is for household trash only! Permits found on improper vehicles, or being used to haul commercial trash, are subject to suspension and/or a fine of $100 to $1,000. Commercial being any business; even a business at home such as chicken house, woodworking, farming, etc.
