How To Open A Landfill Account

The Lewis and Clark County Landfill accepts construction & demolition Class IV waste, compost and other acceptable special waste loads on a per ton charge basis.  You must first set up an account with the landfill.

The landfill will close unexpectedly due to adverse weather conditions. Please call the landfill to verify if they are open.  Alternate haul option: You can take your C&D waste to the City of Helena Transfer Station at 1975 N Benton Ave., and either pay at the scale or use your solid waste permit.  Please call the Scale at 447-8082 for information regarding their fees.
