NOTICE in regards to Hours of Operation at all landfills and container sites:
Customers must be out by closing time listed on website pages.  Solid Waste Management must have enough time before actually closing the facility to accomplish specific activities, per State regulations, so it is imperative that customers are out of the site at closing time listed. 

Check your loads, before driving to the site, to make sure you can be unloaded and out by closing time; if not, plan on going another day. 

Cumberland County Solid Waste is an enterprise fund, which means the department receives no tax dollars for its operations. All county home owners pay a $56 Solid Waste User Fee, billed annually on their tax bill. This fee allows them to use the county’s landfill, compost facility, container sites, and the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center for disposal of household kitchen and bathroom garbage, yard waste, and hazardous material, such as oil paint, pesticides, used motor oil, etc. There is a limit of 4 cubic yards of waste per week that is free.

Formed in 1980, Cumberland County Solid Waste Management oversees:

  • A Subtitle-D landfill, Construction & Demolition Landfill and landfill technology research projects
  • A compost facility, which processes over 50,000 tons of organic material annually
  • 17 drop-off container sites
  • A recycling and waste reduction program that processes more than 3,000 tons of recyclable material

These programs are supported solely by the $56 SW User Fee and the tipping fees charged for materials brought to our facilities that are not covered under the SW User Fee or are brought in by commercial/industrial businesses. 

Each separate area of Solid Waste is permitted by the state and is inspected annually.


The Solid Waste Management Department’s mission is to provide for efficient use of the sanitary landfill and to further the county's efforts in developing future solid waste disposal programs that will conserve natural resources, reduce the volume of waste through recycling, and dispose of non-recoverable wastes in an environmentally sound manner.

Our Wilkes Road Division operates the clean wood and yard waste collection facility to further the county's efforts to reduce landfill waste.

The Operations Division operates the Container Sites/Recycling Centers, which collect solid waste from county facilities and provide recycling for household residents.

Our Planning/Environmental Enforcement Division operates the Household Hazardous Waste Facility, which provides for the efficient, effective, and environmentally safe disposal of household hazardous waste. They also enforce local, state and federal laws on illegal dumping and disposal of hazardous materials.

Thank You!

We would like to applaud all Cumberland County residents and businesses that recycle. Recycling helps extend the life of our landfill and also recovers valuable resources such as plastics, aluminum, metal, glass, cardboard, paper, and yard debris from the waste stream.

Our website is updated regularly to keep information about facilities, services, materials, and listings as accurate as possible. However, if you notice something missing or incorrect please notify us.
