The Monroe County Municipal Solid Waste Landfill plays a very important role to our community. The purpose of the landfill is to provide a user-friendly alternative to the disposal of various material and household waste that is generated directly from Monroe County citizens. The landfill coexists with the Recycle Centers throughout the county. The landfill provides a more resourceful method for the disposal of large bulky items and large volumes of waste material from one source. In addition, the landfill provides an on site Yard Trimming collection area that is converted into mulch and is free of charge to all Monroe County Residents.

Due to EPD regulations, the Landfill Cell Area is CLOSED one (1) hour prior to the Landfill normal hours of operation.  No material can be disposed of in the Cell Area with the exception of Yard Debris and Metal material.  Yard Debris and Metal Material are disposed of in a separate area at the County Landfill for Recycling purposes.
