[ARCHIVED] Landfill Access Limited Today

Today, Wednesday, October 17, 2018, landfill access will be limited to commercial refuse vehicles only.

Heavy rain has impacted conditions at the landfill causing the potential for vehicles to become stuck in mud. To avoid safety issues of lodged vehicles, non-commercial vehicles are asked to abstain from visiting the landfill today. 


The recent rains coupled with the excessive rain from last week has turned the Landfill into a “soupy mess.” We have had multiple vehicles to get stuck in the mud requiring us to attach a chain to assist in pulling them out with our large Landfill equipment. This exposes us to liability when we pull customers out of the mud and causes safety issues with blocked pathways when we choose not to. We normally do our best to combat the rains by hauling mulch to level the ground/roads but have been unable to keep up. Access will be evaluated on a day-by-day-basis while the rain continues, based on conditions.

Vehicles allowed today are commercial refuse trucks that are tandem axel (with differential lock). These vehicles are mainly sideload garbage trucks, rearload garbage trucks, frontload garbage trucks, and tandem axle rolloff trucks. All other vehicles will be denied access for safety purposes.


For questions, please contact the Landfill at (432) 685-3431.
