PRESTON, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Residents of Franklin County, Idaho, can now pay using credit and debit cards at the county landfill, Franklin County Landfill Supervisor Sid Jensen announced.

“We are excited to finally offer this payment option. There have been many times customers drive out to the landfill and forget their checkbook or they’re not carrying enough cash,” Jensen said. “Now there’s a smaller chance they have to go through the inconvenience of leaving and coming back.”

The county accepts any credit or debit card displaying a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express logo.
