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 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

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.
