Bring cash or coins on $1 Day July 13

Saturday, July 13 will be dollar day at the Russell Gulch Landfill, 5977 E. Hope Ln., Globe.

Make sure to tarp, cover or secure trash and bring coins or $1 bill when hauling a load to the landfill to take advantage of the once-a-month dollar day discount.

Laws require all loads must be covered or secured and that applies on dollar day, too. As for the $1-per-load deal, credit card fees and the excessive time spent to process a $1 credit card transaction spurred this reminder to please bring a buck, don’t pay with plastic.

Landfill summer hours remain 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., six days each week; closed Sundays and also holidays.

Gila County Public Works reminds landfill users that “most loads cost about $7.50” on days other than the Second Saturday dollar discount.

Expect a slight surcharge, just over two-cents per pound, when loads exceed 320 pounds

For all other waste (construction, mixed loads, metal, large brush) $7.50 includes up to 280 pounds, with an additional three-cents per pound for heavier loads.

Hauling a load of residential grass clippings, leaves, limbs and shrubs? That’s considered green waste, and the fee is $5 for 280 pounds or less, plus a slight surcharge for heavier loads.

A brush rate applies when tree limbs are larger than four inches diameter.
