New Solid Waste Facility Now Open

Posted on 11/18/2019
The baler building at the Casper Regional Solid Waste Facility opened today after over a year of construction.  Highlights of the renovation include expanding the waste floor, doubling capacity, and adding three commercial waste truck bays.   “This building expansion improves customer service by reducing the need to drive to the landfill cell,” explained Solid Waste Manager Cynthia Langston.  “However, not all waste items will be accepted at the baler building.”  

Some of the common wastes that cannot be disposed of at the baler building are:  
Dirt, concrete, brick and rock
Mattresses, sofas, and wood furniture
Lumber and landscape timbers
Metal items
Animal carcasses

“We have several large containers such as a construction and demolition container conveniently located near the baler building for residential customers to discard items that need to go to the landfill,” explained Langston.  “When customer let the scalehouse clerk know what is in their load, they can be directed to the correct disposal location.”
