Hazardous Household Wastes

Engine Oil and Car Batteries - are accepted at our Recycling Center anytime, free of charge.

Latex Paint – Cans should be opened and allowed to dry completely. They then can be thrown out with your regular household garbage. *To speed up this process, waste paint hardener may be purchased at your local hardware store. Kitty litter or ashes mixed with paint also hastens drying time.

 

Hydrocarbon Contaminated Soils

Soils contaminated with gasoline, diesel, clean used motor oil or crude oil, are accepted at the landfill provided they pass the paint filter test as set forth by the WYO D.E.Q. (EPA method 9095) which basically states that no free liquid shall be present.

The landfill accepts the soil year round (weather permitting) on the condition that the proper analyses have been performed and the results submitted to the Campbell County Environmental Services Planner for review. Once the soil has been approved for disposal, we require a 48 hour notice prior to delivery.

Procedures for testing soil:

  1. The soil must be tested for the DRO (diesel range organics), GRO (gasoline range organics), and TCLP (metals). Energy Labs @ 307-686-7175 is able to perform these tests.
  2. Results of the tests should then be submitted to the Public Works Office (Suite 1400) at the Campbell County Courthouse.
