  2.  Any person who purposely or knowingly disposes of or causes the disposal of more than two thousand pounds or four hundred cubic feet of his or her personal construction or demolition waste on his or her own property shall be guilty of a class D misdemeanor.  If such person receives any amount of money, goods, or services in connection with permitting any other person to dispose of construction or demolition waste on his or her property, such person shall be guilty of a class E felony.
