Effective October 1, 2014
The Board of Ada County Commissioners sets disposal fees for the Ada County Landfill. Only waste generated in Ada County is acceptable for disposal at the Ada County Landfill.
The fee is determined by several different criteria.
First, it must be determined if you are a commercial customer or a non-commercial customer:
Both types of customers can anticipate a minimum charge of $11 for every load of waste.
Checks, cash and credit/debit cards (we do not accept American Express) ARE accepted at the Ada County Landfill
Tipping fees are assessed because the Ada County Landfill is a County ‘Enterprise Fund’, no tax dollars are used for support, maintenance, or operation of the department, the landfill, or the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.
Due to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations regarding greenhouse gas emissions, all landfill waste must be accepted by weight rather than volume. ALL waste coming into the Ada County Landfill will be weighed using truck scales. Vehicles will drive over these scales, so the weight of their load can be calculated.
