    (a) The Agency shall assess and collect a fee from the owner or operator of each clean construction or demolition debris fill operation that is permitted or required to be permitted by the Agency. The fee assessed and collected under this subsection shall be 20 cents per cubic yard of clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil accepted by the clean construction or demolition debris fill operation, or, alternatively, the owner or operator may weigh the quantity of the clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil with a device for which certification has been obtained under the Weights and Measures Act and pay a fee of 14 cents per ton of clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil. The fee shall apply to construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil if (i) the clean construction or demolition debris fill operation is located off the site where the clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil was generated and (ii) the clean construction or demolition debris fill operation is owned, controlled, and operated by a person other than the generator of the clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil.
    (b) The Agency shall establish rules relating to the collection of the fees authorized by subsection (a) of this Section. These rules shall include, but are not limited to, the following:

construction or demolition debris and uncontaminated soil received.
        (2) The form and submission of reports to accompany
    
the payment of fees to the Agency.
        (3) The time and manner of payment of fees to the
    
Agency, which payments shall not be more often than quarterly.

    (d) The Agency shall not refund any fee paid to it under this Section.
    (e) The Agency shall deposit all fees collected under this subsection into the Environmental Protection Permit and Inspection Fund. Pursuant to appropriation, all moneys collected under this Section shall be used by the Agency for the implementation of this Section and for permit and inspection activities.
    (f) A unit of local government, as defined in the Local Solid Waste Disposal Act, in which a clean construction or demolition debris fill operation is located and which has entered into a delegation agreement with the Agency pursuant to subsection (r) of Section 4 of this Act for inspection, investigation, or enforcement functions related to clean construction or demolition debris fill operations may establish a fee, tax, or surcharge with regard to clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil accepted by clean construction or demolition debris fill operations. All fees, taxes, and surcharges collected under this subsection shall be used for inspection, investigation, and enforcement functions performed by the unit of local government pursuant to the delegation agreement with the Agency. Fees, taxes, and surcharges established under this subsection (f) shall not exceed a total of 10 cents per cubic yard of clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil accepted by the clean construction or demolition debris fill operation, unless the owner or operator weighs the quantity of the clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil with a device for which certification has been obtained under the Weights and Measures Act, in which case the fee shall not exceed 7 cents per ton of clean construction or demolition debris or uncontaminated soil.
    (g) For the purposes of this Section:
        (1) The term "uncontaminated soil" shall have the
    
same meaning as uncontaminated soil under Section 3.160 of this Act.
        (2) The term "clean construction or demolition debris
    
fill operation" shall have the same meaning as clean construction or demolition debris fill operation under Section 22.51 of this Act.
