COVID-19 Precautions to Prevent the Spread of the Virus

In an effort to minimize risk to our staff and customers, we are taking steps to minimize contact between staff and customers. We realize the landfill is an essential service for the region and are trying to ensure we can continue to run the site with healthy staff.

For residential customers, please bring a credit card, or debit card that allows the tap function. For commercial customers, we will not be passing paperwork, such as manifests to drivers at this time. We will also not be passing out suckers and dog treats during the current situation. Customers can request load summaries, if needed, by contacting the landfill office at 403-938-5224.
