Sort your trash first. Our Landfill has 5 major different categories:
Construction & Demolition
Limbs & Branches
Do not put grass or branches in your regular trash, these items go to the grass pile of limb pile. When you do bring out your grass, make sure it is free of garbage and dump it in the grass pile up front and place your plastic bags in the trash can provided. It is also wise to call if the weather has been wet so you can check on the accessibility of the Construction & Demolition dump site or the branch & limb pile. When it rains it gets very muddy out there so you might wait until it has a while to dry before you go out there. The landfill will take metal items like appliances, fencing, shelves, etc., however if you have a refrigerated appliance that needs the refrigerant drained, tell the guys so they can drain it first before dumping. The landfill will also take motor oil however you might check around to see if anyone may have an oil burning heater and they will gladly take the used oil off your hands. The landfill also takes Household Hazardous Waste twice a year on the first Saturday in May and October at the Road & Bridge shop on Trail street. We are currently checking into E-waste options and how we can best serve the public on that also so we will keep you updated on what is decided.
The biggest thing to remember is to tie down your load and make sure it is secure BEFORE you come out to the landfill. We've all seen those individuals who have a huge pile on their truck or trailer without tying it down and it ends up all over the road. This is not only against the law, it is dangerous to other drivers, so SECURE YOUR LOAD! We don't want to see anyone get hurt because of debris in the road.
