Q May a county waive the garbage collection fees for a restitution center owned and operated by the Mississippi Department of Corrections?

A Pursuant to its authority under Section 19-5-21(4), the county may enter an order exempting certain classes of garbage generators. Such authority would include the authority to determine that a governmental entity such as MDOC which provides services to the county is exempt from payment of garbage collection fees.
