Neal Road Recycling and Waste Facility now accepting credit card payments withOUT fee

Landfill customers, we ask that you wait on your “Spring Cleaning” until COVID-19 is under control and the STAY AT HOME ORDER is lifted.  If you are working on an essential project, and must make a trip to the landfill, please use a credit card to pay the disposal fees.  This will minimize the need for contact between the public and the scale house staff, helping to keep everyone safe during these next few critical weeks.  

The Neal Road Recycling and Waste Facility (NRRWF) accepts VISA or MasterCard, and now, thanks to a change in the agreement with, there are NO ADDITIONAL FEES TO USE CREDIT CARDS.
