Saturday, June 8 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 such as July 4.
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. For further information, call landfill staff at 928-425-7470
