Some general rules for the Landfill:

All loads must be separated. All loads will be inspected at the guard shack prior to dumping. They will direct you on where to go.

C/D Pit: Guide to follow is: if it can be nailed or screwed to the building or house it can go into the C/D pit. There is a fee on large loads.
Example: Wood, dry wall, building tin, shingles, plywood siding and windows. We prefer that insulation goes to the transfer station if it is possible.

Non-Friable Asbestos MUST be in a separate container, watered down, and tarped before delivery to the landfill. The landfill operator must know when this comes in.

All items listed below will go into separate locations. It makes it easier on everyone to have it separated prior to coming out.

  • All white goods (washers, dryers, hot water tanks) go into the white goods pile. No microwaves

  • Metal and iron. NO OILFIELD PIPE
