New Scale House 2014The purpose of the Wood County Landfill is to provide economical, environmentally responsible opportunities to recycle and dispose of unwanted materials.

What to do when you get to the Landfill:                                                                                               1.  Pull up onto the scale – wait until the light turns green.   One car in, one car out rotation.
2.  Turn left towards public dumping site.  Back up to the boxes on the concrete platform and unload.   There will be three boxes for your landfill items.                                                                 
3.  Once finished, drive onto scale in opposite direction of entry.  If there is a vehicle already on the scale, please pull over and allow them to drive through.                                                             
4.  Park on scale and go inside attached building to pay.  Payment is based on initial and final vehicle weights.



On June 29, 2018, with assistance from our consultant, Hull & Associates, a Landfill Expansion Permit was submitted to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. On August 6, 2018, we held an Application Meeting which was open for the public to learn about this process and ask questions. If you were unable to attend this meeting, but have questions, please feel free to contact Carri Stanley, Assistant County Administrator at 419-354-9100. This permit, if approved, will provide over 100 years extended life to our Landfill. We feel our Landfill is a great public resource offered to residents of Wood County.
