CANYON COUNTY — Pickles Butte Sanitary Landfill will again sponsor a county-wide residential cleanup program by waiving a portion of residents’ landfill fees today. The landfill will be open from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., by which time landfill users must be out, for the cleanup day.
The landfill will accept up to one ton of household cleanup waste from Canyon County residents at no charge. Residents are limited to one free trip per household and may bring, at no charge, up to four passenger or light truck tires, one refrigeration unit (please leave the compressor in the unit), batteries, metal, used motor oil, paint, yard trimmings and general household garbage.
Residents who deliver waste in excess of one ton or the limits for tires and refrigeration units will be charged for the excess material based on the normal landfill fees, which are $14.50 a ton, $2 a tire and $15 per refrigerator. Businesses are not eligible for waiver of landfill fees.
Customers will be asked to deposit wastes into separate piles for tires, batteries, metal, refrigeration units and wood wastes. All these materials are removed from the landfill and recycled.
Customers can expect to experience long lines both entering and exiting the landfill. Please be patient; the landfill staff is working to process people through as quickly and safely as possible.
More information is available by calling the landfill at 466-7288, extension 2, then extension 1.
