Buckhead Mesa Landfill resumed summer hours Monday, April 1, it is now open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, closed Sunday and holidays.
Two additional April dates to be aware of: April 13 is the once-a-month “Dollar Dump Day” for area residents (not commercial haulers, and some restrictions apply) and April 20 brings an Earth Day special when the landfill will accept green waste at no charge, encouraging residents to clear properties of weeds and brush ahead of wildfire season. Green waste includes tree limbs, brush, grass clippings and leaves.
