Advanced Technology. Dry Creek is a progressive landfill using cutting-edge technology to best meet your needs — and the needs of the environment around us. We utilize innovative GPS technology on our compactors, as well as drone survey technology to calculate operational density. The result? We maximize space and minimize problems.

Unloading Service. Dry Creek Landfill specializes in unloading bulky and damaged materials that can’t be easily tipped — such as bulk plastic, railroad ties, waste in bulk totes and from freight crashes. For a nominal fee, we have a forklift, telehandler and large excavators that can assist in unloading. If we can’t utilize our existing equipment, we’ll roll up our sleeves and unload materials by hand, if needed.

Odor Control. Being a good neighbor is a high priority for Dry Creek Landfill. To that end, our Boss TEK Odor Control Cannons use an atomized mist delivery system to mitigate odor to the areas around our site.

Trailer Cleanout Station. Looking to haul another load after unloading your materials at the landfill? We’ve constructed a trailer cleanout station equipped with compressed air and a pressure washer to help you clean your trailer once it’s empty. Please note: Driver’s must be trained to use the facility, so please ask for assistance once you’re on site.

Expediting Turnaround Times. We know that time is money. That’s why we use three Columbia tippers to help keep truck traffic moving during peak times.

Safety is Top Priority. From our smallest action to our largest working site, safety is always the number one goal in all operations. Keeping our workers, our internal and external customers, and the vendors we work with safe while on-site at the Dry Creek Landfill is essential. We work hard to make entering and working at our site safe for everyone involved.

Comprehensive Safety Planning. Heightened and vigilant safety requires extensive preparation and planning. We've built a comprehensive Hot Zone Plan — a detailed plan that empowers everyone to understand and follow our safety protocols within the Dry Creek Landfill's Hot Zones — our active operation and high-traffic locations at the site. The plan includes safety protocols for every hot zone, as well as maps and key information.

It all starts with the liner

In 1998, construction began on Cell #2, a fully-lined facility with an engineering design that exceeds U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards.
