What to expect when coming out to the landfill:
Residents and Commercial Businesses can haul garbage to the landfill. All loads must be adequately covered and are required to weigh on the scale located at the scale house. If the customer has RECYCLING such as scrap metal, tires, appliances, batteries, or Residential Recycling like plastic, tin, paper, cardboard, or glass please park first and go inside to speak to the scale operator for directions. It is easiest to have your like items sorted to aid in the unloading process. Only one vehicle is allowed on the scale at time and vehicles should alternate between incoming and outgoing customers. After the scale attendant has recorded your weight the 3 lights on the buildings will turn green and customers can proceed to the landfill and recycling areas to unload. After unloading, the customer returns to the scale to weigh out. Once the green lights are displayed the customer can park and go into the scale house to pay the bill.
