The mission of the Public Works Department is to provide a safe and convenient way for citizens to dispose of their solid waste and the opportunity to participate in recycling. The County’s landfill  is operated in accordance with Federal and State regulations. The Department operates 13 staffed convenience centers throughout the county which accepts household waste and recycling material. We offer recycling of newspaper, cardboard, plastic, automotive batteries, aluminum cans and magazines at all locations. Tires, appliances, electronics, glass and metal are accepted at the landfill location only.
