Solid Waste





Jefferson County Public Health's Solid Waste program protects public health and the environment in Jefferson County by addressing issues related to solid waste (non-hazardous) and hazardous waste.

Solid Waste staff oversee the design, construction, and operation of landfills and composting facilities.  We also regulate the transfer station, recycling facillity, household hazardous waste facility, and rural waste collection facilties.

Other programs that staff oversee are the site harzard assessments and initial investigatons of accidental spills and historical contamination.  These can be found here

The solid waste program provides information regarding proper disposal of garbage, recycling, composting, and hazardous waste handling, storage, and disposal to businesses and residents.  We consult with business operators, maintain a resource library, and participate in community events.
