(4) “Hauler” means any person, commercial or public entity which collects, hauls, or transports solid waste for a fee by use of any means, including but not limited to, a dumpster truck, roll off truck, side-load, front-load, or rear-load garbage truck, or a trailer.
(5) “Mixed Waste Processing” means processing solid waste that contains both recyclable and/or compostable materials and trash.
(6) “Self hauler” or “self hauling” means a business that transports its own waste and/or recyclables rather than contracting with a hauler for that service.
