Filed under: , ,

By following the steps listed below, your trip to any City landfill will be pleasant, convenient and quick.

  • Upon your arrival, please immediately report to the scale house where an attendant will be happy to help you.
  • Once the attendant has indicated where you are to dispose of materials, follow the directions correctly.
  • Please follow all signage posted at the sites.
  • Make sure you know where your materials should be placed. If in doubt, ask!

There is zero tolerance for:

  • Illegal dumping
  • Abuse – verbal or physical
  • Scavenging
  • Non-payment

When visiting, please dress appropriately. Ideal attire to wear:

  • Proper foot wear (Certified safety foot wear is best)
  • Pants and a shirt (Bulky clothing may become hooked on items)
  • Gloves

For your safety...

  • Children and pets must remain in the vehicle.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Always watch where you are and how close to the curb you get.
  • Always be aware of where the landfill equipment is at all times. Never get close to the machines.
  • Do not stand on tailgates.

Untarped Loads

Residents and commercial haulers are reminded to ensure that loads being brought to City landfill sites are properly tarped.  Untarped loads are illegal and a significant source of roadside litter.  Please tarp every load.
