Garbage Drop-off

Garbage does not have to be in a yellow user pay garbage bag for drop-off at waste facilities; if it is, there is no charge. Yellow User Pay bags can be purchased in advance.

The landfill site accepts large and small loads, and the transfer stations only accept small loads. Please consider reuse options before landfilling items others might find useful.

There are opportunities to divert many materials from landfill. You will find links on this page for programmes offered by the County for materials that don't fit into the other categories.
