Is there a charge for grass and leaves (yard waste)?

Grass and leaves can be taken to the compost pile free of charge.  All bags must be emptied and taken home for disposal.


Do incoming loads have to be tarped or covered?

The Commission has had a covered load policy since July 2004. All loads coming to the landfill must be completely covered or strapped down with the end gate in the upright position. The policy includes trees. This is to prevent materials from blowing out or falling out of the vehicle or trailer. The fee starting on May 1, 2017 will be as follows:

  • Any individual with a load not covered or strapped down will be charged an additional $25 fee in addition to the landfill charge.
  • Any commercial customer with a load not covered or strapped down will be charged an additional $100 fee in addition to the landfill charge. [View Press Release]
