The North Landfill is offering a free Public Dump Day for those citizens impacted by the current closure. This event is scheduled for Saturday, April 4th, 2020, from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.  

  • The Public Dump Day is for residential garbage only.
  • NO commercial haulers or contractors will be allowed to dump and loads of shingles will be turned away
  • Residents are limited to their household garbage only. Tires, refrigerators, freezers and/or air conditioning units will not be allowed.
  • A limited number of loads will be allowed to enter the pit at one time.
  • Children under the age of 15 and pets must remain your vehicle at all times. 
  • We are expecting a high volume of traffic so please be patient. We will be working hard to make sure everyone gets in and out of the pit safely but be aware there may be delays.


Effective March 23, 2020, the Campbell County Landfill will be closed to public/residential dumping. The landfill will remain open for commercial haulers but payment is limited to credit card only. The landfill will not accept cash or checks. This policy will remain in place until further notice. Please check our website frequently for the most up to date information regarding the situation.

Campbell County Landfill is located 11 miles north of Gillette on North Highway 59, near the Basin Electric Dry Fork Station power plant. (See North Landfill Location map).  
Scale house

The landfill has three scales. The outer scale is for commercial haulers and the inner scales (one inbound and one outbound) are for the public. (See the Site Map and Lane Use information). Pull onto the inbound scale and the attendant will direct you to the appropriate dump site.

Signage at the North Landfill is distinct and simple, with large red circles and red numbers. These simple signs will guide you from the scale house to the appropriate dump site.

Fee waived dumping continues at the landfill, with each valid residential address in Campbell County receiving a total of twelve (12) subsidized dumps each year. See fee waived dumping program for more details.  

We encourage you to pre-register your address for this program to speed up the process at the scale house.  

Make sure you tarp or strap your loads before heading to the new facility. There will be a $25 fee for residential loads and a $50 fee for commercial loads arriving at the landfill with an unsecure load. See Dumping Guidelines for more information.
