Please keep in mind that the County is very limited in manpower and vehicles, having only one worker and one truck for each of the three areas, therefore residents are encouraged to:

  • Use the landfills whenever possible -- especially during the dry spells in an effort to prevent fire hazards -- Plus the Seaman Landfill is free to residents!
  • Keep the items within the limitations (See Limitations Below) and
  • Set the items out prior to the start of the week of your scheduled pick-up to prevent backlog (See Schedule Below)
  • Contact the Solid Waste Department with any questions on the type of items that can be picked up
