  • About Us

The Thomas County Landfill operates 7 days a week accepting Municipal Solid Waste, Construction material, metal, concrete, trees, and yard waste. Household Hazardous waste can also be dropped off at the Landfill at any time the landfill is open. Every load is weighed and separated into its appropriate place in the landfill

There is a charge for all materials that go into the pit, including Municipal Solid Waste and Construction & Demolition and furniture.

A complete list of the waste accepted and tipping fees is available at the office. Payment can be by cash, check, credit/debit card or approved accounts may be paid monthly.

    These lists may be subject to change to insure Thomas County remains in compliance with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's Regulations. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that the Scale Operator has the ability to CLASSIFY the different wastes entering the landfill.

    This information is used in reporting tonnages to K.D.H.E. in order to keep our landfill operating.

    Different waste must be VISIBLY separate on the scale to insure proper reporting. At the operator's discretion, loads may be turned back or charged higher tipping fees on loads that have MIXED DEBRIS! This may not be an exclusive list of items not allowed in Municipal Solid Waste and that determination must and shall be made by Thomas County Landfill Employees to do so. Failure to recognize or sort loads according to rules set forth by K.D.H.E. may result in denial of disposal at the Thomas County Landfill.
