Landfill Convenience Center
The Landfill Convenience Center is located just past the Scale House and is available to residents who bring their trash and recyclables to the Landfill for disposal. Trash is placed in the 40-yard containers on the left side of the Convenience Center and recyclables are placed to the right in one of the two stationary compactors. Recyclables accepted are all kinds of paper (newspaper, office paper, datalogs, cereal boes, paper bags and cardboard), glass containers, metal cans and all plastic containers. There is no need to separate the recyclables as they are all mixed together with our comingle process. Please do not put plastic bags or Styrofoam with the recyclables; they go in the trash. There are also designated areas for used oil/oil filters recycling and electronices recycling.
**Please refer to the Recycling section on this website for picture examples of recyclables.

Individual User Fee Schedule
The approved individual user fee or flat fee is $9.00. This fee is based on average weights of this type of waste brought for disposal. This fee is set up on a graduated scale depending on the type and size of vehicle and trailer used to bring waste for disposal. This waste routinely goes into the convenience containers at the landfill entrance area. In some cases, an option to have the waste weighed may be offered or required. Such weighed waste will not go into the convenience containers, but will be sent to the landfill working area for disposal.
