The Landfill


Monday-Saturday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm 


The Engineering and Facilities Department is responsible for the administration, operation, and maintenance of the baler facility and landfill area. The Baler compacts waste into blocks which are then placed in the landfill. The landfill is operated in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations and guidelines.


Landfill operations are supported wholly by disposal fees. Most fees are assessed via garbage collection services so residents can bring many household items to the landfill for free, however, there are also some fees charged at the landfill.

Disposal Service Fees

Some disposal services are charged a fee, among them are:

  • Commercial garbage
  • Metals
  • Residential and commercial construction and remodeling materials including lumber and fixtures (sinks, cabinets, etc.)
  • Vehicles

Please see the Solid Waste section of our fee schedule for fee amounts.

Refund of Overpayment

Overpayments for solid waste disposal charge accounts will be applied to the account declared.  When the account is closed with written notice a refund check will be processed within 2 to 4 weeks from the date of the request.

If you have a question about a possible overpayment on your solid waste disposal account, or a refund you believe is due, please email or call the Finance Department at 907-486-9323
