Residential Drop Off Guidelines

  • You must provide your own labor for unloading materials. 
  • Residents should pull up onto the scale and enter the office to scale in and for on-site directions for unloading. 
  • All small loads or loads in non-dumping trailers will dump into the blue dumpsters off the scale with the RED- Garbage sign. 
  • All dump trailers will be directed to dump up into the active landfill area.
  • We accept cash, check or credit/debit card for payment. All cards will be charged a 3% fee (minimum fee is $1.50).
  • Due to safety concerns, we do not permit salvaging once waste is unloaded. 
  • Residents are required to disclose fire loads to scale attendant or landfill staff regardless of the age of the fire. Be prepared to answer questions regarding the origin and date of occurrence before unloading will be allowed in the active area.
