The City of Salina is planning a free day at the landfill on Saturday
According to the city, there will be free residential refuse disposal at the Salina Municipal Solid Waste Landfill for all Saline County residents on Saturday, Oct. 20. Customers must have a Saline County license plate on their vehicle for free disposal. Vehicles from other Counties will be required to pay normal tipping fees.
Items not accepted at the landfill include automobiles, batteries, corrosive waste, explosives, flammable waste, hazardous waste, liquid waste (including paint), machinery, reactive waste, storage tanks, toxic waste, and vehicle or equipment wreckage.
Items accepted, but still subject to applicable tipping fees for all customers (commercial and residential) include brick, concrete, rock, commercial loads (including waste from residents that is anything other than normal household trash), Freon-containing items (Freon removal certification required), roofing & other construction materials, boats, sheds, trailers, tires, and waste requiring a Special Waste Permit from the KDHE.
A listing of fees may be viewed on the City’s website at http://www.salina-ks.gov/content/18394/18540/20954/default.aspx. Please call the landfill for specific rates not listed.
Commercial waste haulers will be given priority (standard rates apply).
Customers should be prepared for delays. A line is expected to form during this event and the number of customers will be limited at the disposal site and convenience area.
Customers are encouraged to use caution at all times, follow staff instructions, obey all signs, and stay on approved roadways. Removal of any landfill property (including waste from other customers) is prohibited.
The landfill will close promptly at 4 p.m. Customers will not be permitted entrance after closing, even if a line is still present. Normal business hours and fees will resume on Monday, Oct. 22.
