State Law
State law requires that each load be secured. If a load does not have a tarp or is not tied down to prevent loss of waste, the violator will be charged an additional $15.00 fee.

A deposit will be required on all cash loads according to the size of the load and the type of material.

*The acceptable deposit may be credit card, cash, check (made out to the City of Lubbock and no amount written in until after disposal), or driver's license with a city of Lubbock address.  When using a driver's license other requirements and stipulations may apply and the Landfill Policy governing this section will be followed. Questions concerning the driver's license for payment, please call 806-757-2151 or 806-767-2492.

A customer's driver's license is for residential use and not for commercial businesses. Resident's are entitled to twelve free loads at the landfill per year.  The driver's license may not be used for demolition including remodeling materials, roofing shingles, concrete, fencing, and/or bricks. All materials brought for disposal must be in accordance with Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regulations pertaining to a Type I landfill.

Waste identified or listed as hazardous waste by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or the TCEQ will not be accepted at either landfill.
