Items MUST be sorted – please ask questions at the scales as you enter or of landfill employees if you are not sure where things should go. Some sorting requirements are to protect the equipment from damage and others are required by DEQ (Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality and they have the authority to levy large fines on the county). Improper sorting fees range from $20 per item to $240/ton additional on the entire load. Staff may charge a $75 fee and require reloading and removal of an unsorted load.
To avoid $20 fee, TARP your load unless it is in an ENCLOSED trailer or vehicle!
