(d) Deposits shall be made until the Fund reaches $10,000.00. After which, deposits shall cease until the Fund balance drops below $5,000.00, at which time, deposits will resume until the fund once again reaches $10,000.00.

(e) Money deposited into the Waste Hauler Trust Fund shall be used exclusively to provide reimbursement of unused prepaid fees to customers of a hauler which has abandoned an area of service. Customers in the abandoned area are entitled to reimbursement of any unused amounts pre-paid by the customer to said hauler, not to exceed the limits of the fund.

(f) In order to qualify for reimbursement from the Fund, the customer must demonstrate proof of payment.

(g) Any hauler who fails to provide service to a customer who then qualifies for reimbursement under these provisions, shall be permanently barred from further waste hauling within the District.
