A New Lease on Life for Old Items

The Regional Landfill has a "Take it or Leave it" shed located just to the right of the scale house as you drive in. In the spirit of our mandate to extend the life of the landfill, this program lets customers drop off or pick up items that can be put to use. This is only part of the landfill from which materials can be taken.

If you have any questionable items, please contact us BEFORE bringing them to the Take it or Leave it shed.

Tanks...for Recycling

Propane tanks cannot be disposed of in the landfill; however, we do accept all propane tanks (including 1lbs and helium tanks) as recyclable items and store them separately.

There's a special part of the Regional Landfill and transfer sites dedicated to white metals; bikes; BBQs; tires; and propane tanks.
