Current Wind Closing Policy: When winds reach 25 mph the staff will determine if waste can be contained. If not, haulers will be called and notified the time of closing. If the Landfill closes before 1:00 pm it may reopen the next regular business day an hour early, unless the landfill is already scheduled to be closed that day, or if winds are too high that morning to open for business. If you are not sure if the landfill will be open, call 877-982-4288 to confirm. If it is windy and you get the answering machine, the landfill is probably closed. Covered Load Policy: To avoid an additional $20.00 fee all loads brought to the landfill must be entirely covered with a tarp, snow fence or similar item.. This includes lumber and large objects. Ropes alone are not considered a cover. Certain "difficult to cover loads" may be exempted on a case by case basis by the scale attendant. Acceptable Material for Disposal: Users may only dispose at the landfill, in accordance with permitted procedures, Commercial, Residential, and Construction and Demolition Waste which originates from Floyd, Mitchell or Chickasaw counties in Iowa. Construction and Demolition Waste includes Solid Waste from building materials, packaging, and rubble resulting from construction, remodeling, repair, and demolition operations on pavements, houses, commercial buildings, and other structures. Such waste may include: bricks, concrete, other masonry materials, soil, asphalt, rock, lumber, pallets, crates, rebar, glass, flooring, carpet and pad (only if the result of a remodel or demolition), sheet rock, roofing, insulation, windows, siding and gutters, steel and other metals generated by Construction and Demolition operations. Empty cans, buckets or tubes holding less than 10% construction products such as paints, adhesives, solvents or sealers. Special Waste: See FMC’s Special Waste Acceptance Criteria (SWAC) which follows. Items Not Acceptable for Disposal: Items not acceptable for disposal include free liquids, deposit beverage containers, brush and yard waste (including clippings, branches, trees, etc.), hazardous waste, and red bag medical waste. Household Hazardous Waste may be disposed of April – October at our satellite facilities (dates and times subject to change), or daily at the landfill. Tires and appliances must not be commingled with other waste. They are accepted in the trailer to the west of the office. Appliances that are demolished or burned are still considered an appliance and a separate charge applies. Items that shall be Recycled: CRT’s (monitors, televisions) have a separate fee and should not be commingled with other waste. Electronics such as vcr’s, stereos, computers, etc. may be recycled at no fee.
