We ask that good judgment and common sense be used by all persons who wish to utilize the Landfill services.

** You may purchase punch cards to use at the dump with the County Clerk and Recorder; however, it is preferable that the dump writes tickets for you to pay with the Clerk and Recorder following your visit. Tickets unpaid by the end of the month will sent an invoice. The Clerk and Recorder office only sells the tickets for the Landfill.  They do not make, interpret or enforce any of the rules. **

Questions concerning the landfill should be directed toward the Board of Directors, which holds meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, excluding January and July, at 5 p.m. in the Powell County Courthouse conference room.
