Landfill and Balls Ford Road Compost Facility – New COVID 19 GUIDANCE

Landfill and Balls Ford Road Compost Facility – New COVID 19 GUIDANCE

The County Landfill and the Balls Ford Compost Facility are both open. However, we have instructed our employees to practice social distancing and stay 6 feet away from customers, so unloading assistance is restricted. We also request customers practice social distancing from each other. This can be a challenge on weekends, so we are offering these guidelines to implement social distancing and help protect customers:

• Limit trips to bringing household waste only. We request residents refrain from bringing brush, yard debris, construction debris and bulky items at this time.
• Avoid weekend visits, especially the hours between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. if possible.
• Limit trips to one per week.
• Have your Driver’s License ready to display unless you have decal.
• Apply for a free Solid Waste decal. Information available at under the Rules and Regulations section.
• Take care of your disposal quickly, but use caution when driving through the convenience center and facility property.
• Bring someone to assist you with unloading, if needed, because staff have been restricted from this activity.
