Landfill Details: What is the Landfill For? 

The landfill is a location set aside for the disposal of solid waste. Our Washington County Landfill is modern and well-maintained to take care of your trash (unwanted materials) and garbage (food waste). Each day, the waste is buried under a six-inch layer of compressed soil to reduce odors and keep the base firm. We offer a variety of services at the landfill: composting, recycling for batteries and tires, removing household hazardous waste, collecting used oil, and many others. 

Paint Exchange Program 

The Paint Exchange Program is a free service to both drop-off and shop for paint. Residents can bring quality new or used paint to the Washington County Landfill to participate in the Paint Exchange Program. The paint needs to be water-based, latex house paint in cans that are more than a quarter full. It needs to be in reusable condition—within 2 years of being opened. If it does not meet these criteria, the paint can be disposed of at the biannual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day or dried out and removed with your regular garbage.




Tire Recycling 

Tires are difficult to landfill because they can trap methane gases. These gases can cause damage to the underground liners that keep our water safe by bubbling to the surface. To protect our water and our environment, tires can be recycled at our Washington County Landfill for a small price. More than 12 tires of any kind are $326.21/ton. Please note that state law does not allow us to take more than 12 tires at a time from residents.
