.07 Compost Tonnage Reporting.

A. Tonnage Reporting Statement.

(1) The registrant of each compost product shall submit to the Department:

(a) A semiannual written statement of the tonnage for each brand or classification of compost distributed in this State; and

(b) An inspection fee of 25 cents for each ton distributed.

(2) This statement and inspection fee shall include each sale for the periods of January 1 through June 30 and July 1 through December 31 of each year.

B. Failure to File Statement or Pay Fee. If a registrant fails to file a tonnage report and the inspection fee is not paid within 31 days after the end of the semiannual period, a collection fee amounting to 10 percent of the amount, or a minimum of $10, may be assessed against the registrant. The amount of fees due constitute a debt and may become the basis of a judgment against the registrant.
