Important Information

Historically Park County has operated the Park County Regional Landfill near Cody during holidays to help facilitate municipally operated waste collection operations. With decreasing revenues, tight budgets, and staffing limitations, the Board of County Commissioners have directed all County department managers (other than critical law enforcement personnel) to cease from working holidays or days which would require payment of overtime wages to employees. For this reason, effective January 1, 2021 and until further notice, all Park County operated waste disposal facilities will not be open and operating during County recognized holidays. For your reference, these holidays include:

New Year's Day January 1st
President’s Day 3rd Monday of February
Memorial Day Last Monday of May
Independence Day  July 4th
Labor Day   1st Monday of September
Columbus Day    2nd Monday of October
Veterans’ Day November 11th
Thanksgiving Day (2 days)    4th Thursday and Friday of November
Christmas Eve (4 hours)     December 24th (only if holiday falls on Mon-Fri)
Christmas Day     December 25th

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or if you need further clarification.

Pricing Sheet

The Clark and Powell Landfills are scheduled to revert to “Dry” or unlined Construction/Demolition (C&D) sites on September 18, 2012.  Household wastes will no longer be accepted at either site after this date.

Use the Dry Landfill Rules link to the left to see the new rules for acceptable and non-acceptable items.  For more technical questions, please visit the Wyoming DEQ rules and regulations website

The Park County Regional Landfill in Cody and the Powell Landfill both utilize a certified set of scales to weigh each delivery and the charge is based on this weight.  The landfill located in Clark will not have scales and is still basing the charge on volume.

Landfill Procedures

  1. All vehicles are required to register with the Landfill Gate Attendant to receive delivery instructions for every load. All vehicles must stop when exiting.
  2. Please follow the gate attendant's instructions. You must obey all disposal area signs. Penalties exist for improper trash placement. If you have a question please obtain help from one of the site employees. Operations and disposal areas at the facilities change often.  We are here to help.
  3. Obey speed limit signs especially while taking turns entering and exiting the scale.
  4. Yield to Landfill equipment.  You can see them better than they can see you.  Be cognizant of your surroundings. 
  5. During inclement weather please call to make sure areas of disposal are open.
  6. Motor vehicles for scrap are accepted but all the liquids must be drained from the vehicle.
  7. All waste brought to the landfill must be secured, covered or in a closed container. Any load arriving at the landfill gate not properly secured will be subject to a $25 surcharge or refusal to accept material for disposal.
