Wood waste: Citizens are encouraged to participate in the Pickles Butte Wood Waste Diversion Program by separating their waste as noted below. Community collection sites are requested to provide a separate bin for their citizens to deposit wood waste into. The program diverts wood waste from disposal into the landfill. Acceptable materials are as follows:
Tree limbs, tree trunks and stumps, orchard trimmings, shrubs, lumber scrap, wood house siding, wood packing scrap and pallets, wood shingles without tar paper, particle board, wood fencing, painted wood scrap, chemically preserved wood, pressure treated fence posts, railroad ties, grass and leaves and treated landscape wood.
Metal: Individual residents who deliver waste directly to the landfill and community collection sites are encouraged to separate metal objects for recycling at the landfill. Community collection sites are requested to provide a separate collection bin for citizens to deposit their metal into.
Commercial haulers: Commercial haulers that are hauling normal business wastes will be accepted in accordance with the regular landfill fee schedule. Commercial haulers that deliver wastes from community collection events will be asked to provide a letter of verification from the community for each load delivered.
