Free-Cycle: The Waste District acknowledges "one person's trash may be another person's treasure." Montanan's have always reused and recycled. Instead of discarding unwanted but usable items including toys, tools or furniture, individuals may consider donating them. Residents should first consider re-selling or donating usable items to organizations of need. In addition, the site will have a scavenge or "Free-Cycle" for donated reusable items. These items of use can be voluntarily set aside and then collected by any other Augusta Solid Waste District resident for their personal use. Neither Lewis and Clark County nor the Solid Waste District have inspected or warranted the condition of these items. By removing items from this area, the person(s) doing so accepts full responsibility for the quality, safety and usability of any item exchanged or scavenged.

The Augusta Solid Waste District was created in August of 1997.  Board meetings are held quarterly at the Augusta Senior Center, the second Monday in February, May, August, and November. The public is welcome.

The Augusta Solid Waste Board Assessment Policy is based on the average waste generated by Augusta residents of 1.5 tons per household. This is the Equivalent Unit (EU), charged at $100.00 per year.  All other assessments are based on multiples of the EU.
