The Power County Landfill is actually a Transfer Station with a Construction/Demolition (C&D) pit. We also have a brush pile/grass pile and a metal pile.

We take refrigerators and batteries at no charge. We also take used motor oil and anti-freeze in household amounts. Please help us keep recyclable items out of the MSW stream and be willing to separate your loads.

Power County also grinds the brush pile and we sell that end product for $1.00 a yard, loaded.
