What materials are not accepted at the landfill? The landfill does not accept household trash or hazardous waste, including medical waste, liquids, sludge, paints, whole tires, batteries, drums and asbestos-containing materials.

How much does it cost to use the landfill? Our rates are based on volume. Effective January 1, 2021, the minimum charge is $52 with a 4-yard minimum, which covers the first 4 cubic yards of waste. Each cubic yard over the minimum is $13 per cubic yard. For reference, a pickup truck bed filled with trash that is piled no higher than the top of the truck’s cab is considered 4 cubic yards. The equation for estimating your trash’s cubic yardage = (length in feet x width in feet x height in feet) divided by 27. The scale attendant on duty will determine actual measurement and cost.
