You may need to process your transaction in two parts if part of your load is not 100% E-Card acceptable.  For example, you may need to weigh your vehicle for your demolition debris, head into the yard and drop off your demolition debris, return back to the scale to weigh your vehicle to complete the first part of your transaction. The second part of your transaction will be to head back into the yard to drop off your E-Card items. Please follow guidance from the scale attendants and the transactions will go smoothly.

If you do not have a valid E-card, if you have used up all available items, or if you fail to show your E-Card to an attendant BEFORE entering the facility, you will be required to pay the appropriate fee.
