(1) Fees collected by a health officer under this part shall be deposited with the city or county treasurer, who shall keep the deposits in a special fund designated for use in implementing this part.

Fees collected by the department under this part shall be credited to the general fund of the state.
(2) This part does not prohibit an individual from disposing of solid waste from the individual's own household upon the individual's own land as long as the disposal does not create a nuisance or hazard to health.
