Special Waste

Properly disposing of contaminated waste

Certain special waste materials — including contaminated soil, specific waste streams, and anything containing asbestos — have special requirements for handling and disposal. Dry Creek Landfill is not permitted to accept hazardous waste. Certain materials may be difficult to classify, so we follow a special waste management plan that focuses on characterizing particular waste streams. In some cases, testing is required in order to help characterize the waste stream to determine if we can accept the material for disposal.

Know before you go

Dry Creek Landfill will only accept special waste on a prearranged basis. Only special waste from known sources will be accepted for approval. Generators must provide reliable documentation describing the source and nature of the contamination. Depending on the type of material you have to dispose, you may need to complete and submit a fillable form. Once all of the required documentation is submitted (including any required laboratory tests) we will evaluate your material and let you know if we can accept it for disposal. During this process additional laboratory testing may be needed.

Additional Information

We accept contaminated soil and special waste Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 4:30 pm with an approved profile. Since we are a commercial-only facility, you will need to set up an account prior to disposal, or call in a valid credit card number each morning of delivery. Typical tests that may be required:

  • Paint Filter Test to determine the presence of any free liquids
  • Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) Test to determine whether arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, selenium and silver are present
  • THP Test to see if there is a possibility of fuel and/or oil contamination

Doing what’s right

When it comes to environmental safety, Dry Creek Landfill utilizes some of the most advanced waste containment engineered systems available.
