The Walker County Landfill provides an essential service to the community, as the proper disposal of waste reduces health hazards and environmental concerns. In order to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, residents are asked to limit non-essential outings and observe several new guidelines:
- No mixed loads (only municipal solid waste accepted from residents at this time)
- Limit trips
- Bring your own tools
- All loose garbage must be bagged
Effective April 15, 2019, the Walker County Landfill is now open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is CLOSED on Sunday. All customers must offload their waste and exit the facility by 4:00 p.m. Large loads that cannot be unloaded quickly may be turned away. Please arrive with enough time to unload your waste. We reserve the right to refuse any waste at any time.

Our first “Retire Your Tires” Amnesty Day was an overwhelming success! Walker County set a goal to collect 2,000 tires during the amnesty event, based on the Litter Crew finding 1,030 tires along county roads from January to October. Once Landfill Manager Paine Gily counted all the tires brought in, he discovered we collected 5,543!
The second Retire Your Tires Amnesty Day event outperformed the original! We collected 6,741 tires during the May 19th event. We would like to thank everyone who took time to recycle their tires and those who worked to make this event a huge success.
The third Retire Your Tires Amnesty Day event was held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 and brought in 8,933 tires! Due to demand, an additional event will be schedule in late fall of this year.
