In an effort to better organize the landfill and dumping procedures, new requirements are required from all residents before unloading at the Wanham Transfer Station and Tangent Landfill. Effective immediately, any resident wishing to dump garbage will be required to give their name and license plate number as well as the type of garbage they are unloading. If this information is not provided, dumping privilege will be denied. This is to ensure organization and accountability. The County appreciates your assistance with this matter.
