Gila County Public Works reminds Rim Country residents that “most loads cost about $7.50” and hours at Buckhead Mesa Landfill are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., six days each week. The landfill is closed on Sundays and also on Memorial Day May 2, and July 4.

Dispose up to 320 pounds of kitchen trash for $7.50. Expect a slight surcharge, just over two cents per pound, when loads exceed 320 pounds. All other waste — construction, mixed loads, metal, large brush — the $7.50 cost covers up to 280 pounds, with an additional three cents per pound for heavier loads.

Hauling a load of residential grass clippings, leaves, limbs and shrubs? That’s considered “green waste” and the fee is $5 for 280 pounds or less, plus a slight surcharge for heavier loads. A “brush rate” applies when tree limbs are larger than four inches diameter.

For answers to specific questions, call Buckhead Mesa Landfill staff at 928-476-3350.
