Yakima County Landfills to Limit Self-Haulers
Public Asked to Refrain from Bringing Yard and other “Non-Essential” Waste
YAKIMA, WA – Waste being delivered to the Terrace Heights Landfill, Cheyne Landfill, and the Lower Valley Transfer Station will be restricted to essential waste from self-haulers (i.e., general public). No limitations will be put on commercial-haulers at this time. Essential waste includes but is not limited to:
Please refrain from bringing yard or “spring cleaning” waste and consider holding materials to be disposed of at a later time. We understand that disposing of household garbage is necessary to ensure a healthy living environment, but we ask that you limit your trips to the County Landfills.
To maintain social distancing, and to protect our staff as well as the public, non-essential customers will be turned away until the stay-at-home order has been lifted. You can expect increased wait times as approximately 20 self-haulers per hour are being processed through each Landfill.
The Lower Valley Transfer Station will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
