Accepted Wastes:

Both landfills accept all wastes except those that are hazardous (batteries, pesticides, oil, etc) or those that are in liquid form (paint, oil, etc).

      Refrigerators or Freezers: We accept any appliance or equipment containing Freon for $10/unit. It does not matter if the unit currently contains Freon or if the compressor has been removed. All units that have ever contained Freon will cost $10 to dispose of them.

      Tires: We strongly encourage all tires to be recycled at a tire recycler/tire shop. However, we will accept up to 4 non-commercial tires from a resident. We do not accept tires from any businesses.


There are no charges for Iron County residents that dispose of household waste.
Household waste is waste generated at your home (mattresses, yard waste, kitchen trash, appliances, etc)

Construction waste (waste created from the building or demolition* of a structure) is accepted at both locations and is charged $17/ton or $5 for small loads of less than 500lbs. This material can be concrete, sheetrock, lumber, etc. This fee applies to residents, contractors, or businesses. If your load is mixed with both household waste and construction waste, the entire load will be charged.
*Any demolition or renovation that involves a contractor must be inspected for asbestos prior to disposal.

Business waste (any waste generated from a business) is accepted at a rate of $22/ton. LOADS MUST BE COVERED AND SECURED to prevent them from blowing or falling out on the way to the landfill. Loads not covered/secured will be charged extra fees.

Refrigerators and Freezers are accepted for $10 per unit.

Any waste coming from outside Iron County is charged double the normal rates.


We recycle any metal and green-waste (trees/trimmings, Christmas trees, bushes).


Mulch (ground green-waste) is sold for $25.00/loader bucket and is loaded by the landfill staff.
