Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill

LandfillReopening (005)

Curbside Collection

The Department of the Environment (DoE) will continue to provide trash, recycling and yard trim collection services on schedule.

Latex paint is NOT hazardous and should NOT be delivered to the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) site. Instead, residents should:

  1. Donate leftover latex paint to relatives, friends or neighbors who might need the paint for a project
  2. Allow leftover latex paint to dry and place it in the regular household trash bag for trash disposal.
  3. Use kitty litter or quick paint drying agents that many of the paint stores sell in packets (it is very inexpensive). Once the paint dries, place dried paint can(s) in the regular trash bag for regular trash disposal.

**All trash must be tied and bagged securely.**

Organics Composting Facility

Open to residential and Commercial/Business customers.

Residents who have County provided yard trim curbside collections should continue to place their yard trim at the curb by 6 a.m. on Mondays for regular collections. Residents who do not have curbside collection, may drop-off yard trim at the County’s Convenience Drop-off Centers during regular hours of operation.

Convenience Centers

Residents who do not have County-contracted Residential Curbside Collection should use the Residential Convenience Drop-Off Centers for disposal of regular household bagged trash and recyclables. **All trash must be tied and bagged securely.**

Bulky Trash

Curbside bulky trash collection resumes August 3. Appointments may be scheduled by visiting or by contacting 311.

Full residential and commercial operations have resumed at the Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill.

Emergency & Temporary/Permanent Closing

During periods of natural and/or manmade disasters, which jeopardize the safety of citizens and personnel, the management may decide to temporarily suspend landfilling operation until the danger subsides. This is especially true and more common during periods of lightning storms. The vast and open area of the Landfill's disposal area is elevated and susceptible to possible hazards. Once operations are interrupted, notification will be arranged and we will resume operation only after the danger or hazard is gone and the area is deemed safe for operations.

Holiday Schedule

Holiday closings are posted at the entrance to the Landfill prior to each date. The Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill will be closed on the following holidays:
  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • July 4th
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
Note: Should the holiday fall on a Saturday, the Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill will be closed that day and the Friday before the holiday.
