Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I go?  Look for the “Landfill Entrance” sign and stop at the Scale Office prior to unloading.  Most vehicles will be weighed on the scale that is next to the Office.

Do I need a tarp?  Per County Ordinance, open loads must be tarped or covered during transport to and at the Facility.  This includes all waste and recyclable materials brought to the Facility.

 

Do I need a safety vest?  Bring a safety vest if you operate a commercial vehicle or contractor trailer that functions with a hydraulic dumping mechanism – you will likely be directed to unload at the Transfer Station.  Customers who unload their vehicle or trailer by hand will be directed to the Residential Drop-off Area where safety vests are not required.

What materials do you accept?  We accept general trash and curbside recyclables from residential and commercial sources.  We also accept many other residential items that are banned from landfill disposal and certain pre-approved industrial wastes.  The best resource for learning what we accept is our What do I do with... page.

 

Do I have to be a resident of Winnebago County to use the Facility?  Non-residents are welcome to use general waste and curbside recycling services.  The Household Hazardous Materials Facility and Universal Waste programs are only available to Winnebago County residents.  Contact us for more information.

Can someone help unload?  We operate with minimal staffing and typically do not have anyone available to help unload items from your vehicle or trailer.  Please bring someone along if you feel you'll need assistance.

What are user fees?  The fees charged for our waste disposal and recycling services help off-set disposal, operational and vendor costs.  Fees are outlined on our Standard Tipping Fee Rate Schedule.  Disposal and recycling fees will be collected by the Scale Operator.  Cash, check, VISA and MasterCard are accepted.

Do you pick-up?  We do not offer a pick-up service.  Contact your waste/recycling hauler for options.

Where can I find more information about my trash or recycling curbside pick-up service?  Visit your local Municipal website or office.
