Landfill Fees for Residential/Household Waste Waived for 2018 May Long Weekend

On May 19, 20 and 21 landfill fees for residential/household waste will be waived. Please note this includes residential/household waste ONLY, and does not include construction, demolition or renovation materials (including but not limited to decks, laminate flooring, sinks, bathtubs, toilets and drywall).  The processing fees associated with disposing of CFC appliances (fridges, freezers, AC units and water coolers) still apply, as well as the processing fees for mattresses and box springs.

To avoid wait times, we recommend visiting the landfill before 11:00 am and after 2:00 pm. The residential scale is open between 10:15 am and 3:45 pm.  During other hours, please use the main scale.  The residential scale is for small residential vehicles only; if you are towing a trailer, please use the main scale.
