The hours are 7:30 to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday morning from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. The hours on Saturday only apply from the first Saturday of April through the last Saturday of October. All incoming loads of garbage Monday through Friday must be across the scale by 3:30 p.m. All incoming loads of garbage on Saturday must be across the scale by 10:30 a.m.
Grass and leaves can be taken to the compost pile free of charge. All bags must be emptied and taken home for disposal.
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:
TVs and monitors can be recycled at the recycling center regardless of size. The hard drive, keyboard, and mouse also.
Look at the label on the can of paint to see if it is a latex or oil-based paint. Latex paint uses soap and water for cleanup.
You can dispose of latex paint by mixing it with kitty litter or oil-dry. Once the paint is dry, take the lid off and throw it in with your garbage.
If it is oil-based paint, bring it to the recycling center where it will be treated as hazardous waste at no charge (if it is from a household).
The recycling trailers are located on the East side of Bomgaars (715 Lincoln Hwy, Carroll, IA).
