Bingham County operates a Central Transfer Station in Moreland. There are also two
non-municipal landfills for the disposal of construction and demolition debris. One is
located in Aberdeen and the other is located near Firth known as the Rattlesnake Canyon Non-municipal site.
Solid waste rules have resulted in changes with how solid waste is handled in Bingham County. Bingham County is contracting its Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), i.e. household waste, to be hauled to either the Bannock County Landfill or Milner Butte Landfill both meeting all Federal and State standards.
The County manages the landfills that have accepted what has been traditionally called Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) found that some of the items that have been allowed to be buried in C&D landfills created problems in some landfills. To reduce the risk in the future, they have changed what can be accepted in landfills without a lining (Subtitle "D" Regulations). These would be called Tier I and Tier II categories of C&D debris. The Rattlesnake and Aberdeen Landfills are identified as Tier I and Tier II landfills.
Solid Waste Ordinance
All loads must be covered and/or secured. Loads that are not covered or secured will incur an additional $10.00 charge.
