Where is the landfill and how much does it cost?

Our county has three landfills--

Dumping fees depend on what and how much material you are dumping. For an average size pick up truckload without any major appliances, the range is $12-20. You will be charged extra for oversize items such as appliances or furniture. Call the landfill for operating hours and more details.

What do I do with old appliances, mattresses and sofas?

Donate or sell items whenever possible! Many non-profit organizations, churches and other groups need such items that are expensive to purchase or replace. As long as an old appliance isn't a fire hazard, it may be repaired and is still usable. To dispose of large items, take advantage of special collection days that offer free or a reduced cost pickup (sponsored by your garbage company) or take items to the dump and pay for disposal.
