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.
