Solid Waste

Solid Waste Department

Taking out the trash? Residential and commercial waste can be disposed of at the County Landfill. All loads must be in enclosed containers or secured under tarps to prevent littering.

Residential waste also can be disposed of at our two transfer stations. Vehicles or trailers larger than full-size pickups, however, will be referred to the main County Landfill. Disposal amount must be two cubic yards or less. Bulky items such as furniture must go to the landfill.
