LANDFILL RULES

Rockglen residents must have a tag on their garbage bags and/or boxes in order to have them picked up. The bags and/or boxes cannot weigh over 40 pounds or they will not be picked up. Please wrap the tag around the top of the garbage bag and stick it to itself or place the tag on the side of the box.

Grass clippings, garden refuse and leaves can be hauled to the landfill at no charge. These items must be put in the compost pile. If bagged, the bags must be emptied and removed. No garbage is to be put in the compost pile or it will result in this service being removed.

Tree branches and untreated wood can be hauled to the landfill and put in the wood pile to be burnt at no charge.

Metal can be hauled to the landfill and put in the metal pile at no charge EXCEPT for appliances containing FREON.

A FREON removal sticker must be obtained from the Town Office at a cost of $25.00 before the appliance is taken to the landfill.

Wire cannot be put in the metal pile. Wire must be put in the pit as the metal recycling companies will not accept it.
