If an individual needs to leave a garage or lot, there is no need to pay again when reentering any long-term garage or lot. Simply place the receipt payment for that day inside on the dash board of the car facing up so the date can be clearly read.

Residents parking overnight with valid permits can enter lots and garages at 3 p.m. daily at no additional charge, and must exit lot/garage by 8 a.m. Monday-Friday.

Resident Disposal/Recycling Permit - A disposal permit (PDF) is required for each residential vehicle that uses the Municipal Disposal Area. The permit is issued by the Parking Services Agency and is a dual permit for both this facility and to park for commuting purposes. The Department of Community Services manages the Disposal Area, where solid wastes and recyclables are collected and marketed, and where leaves are composted. The Disposal Area includes a solid waste transfer station, where residents may bring household wastes (garbage and trash) and bulky wastes (large items such as furniture); a leaf composting area; and a recycling center. View the disposal area flyer (PDF) which includes a map and directions.

The Municipal Disposal Area is restricted to trash and other solid wastes from Summit only. Use of the area is free to all residents of the city; all other users must pay a per ton fee to dispose of trash, leaves and branches, and other materials.

Commercial vehicles must register at the Community Services counter in City Hall where coupons for the Disposal Area are available for purchase.
