Avoid delays at the landfill, prepay to dispose of waste

Only Rice County residents/property owners may dispose of waste at the Solid Waste facility. No out-of-county waste will be accepted. The gate attendant will verify load with proof of payment. Credit cards will also be accepted at the gate and scale, though wait times may be longer.

A licensed hauler is recommended for your waste disposal needs. Con­tact a licensed hauler if you are in need of services. 

Rice County residents and property owners are encouraged to use the pre-pay system if they wish to self-haul their items to the facility.  This system reduces wait times at the facility while allowing a contactless payment method. It also allows self-haulers to remain in their vehicle except when disposing of their items into the appropriate container/area.

To access this pre-payment system, visit the Online payments/scheduling page or follow the instructions below.
