Landfill Extended Operating Hours

The City of Kearney announces that the Kearney Area Solid Waste Agency Landfill, located at 6711 West 56th Street, will resume extended operating hours for yard waste and tree disposal beginning Monday, March 30, 2020.

The following hours are in effect March 30 through October 31, 2020.

Yard Waste and Tree Disposal Hours
Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Landfill Hours
Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Yard waste such as grass, leaves, trees and garden waste are banned from being buried
in the landfill by State Law. Yard waste, including tree waste one inch in diameter or less,
is accepted free of charge at the Landfill’s Composting disposal area. Mixed loads that
contain yard waste will not be accepted at the landfill unless the hauler separates the yard
waste.
City Code also bans yard waste from being placed in trash containers. Trash containers
with yard waste will not be emptied until the yard waste is removed.
Vehicles hauling waste to the landfill must have the waste covered or fastened in
accordance with the Covered Load Policy in order to prevent materials from being blown
from the vehicle or strewn along the ground. Residential and Commercial haulers
transporting waste in vehicles entering the landfill that do not have the load properly
fastened or covered will be charged an additional fee.
