Public Disposal Changes At Joe Ney Landfill

K-DOCK 92.9

Effective August 30th, the Joe Ney Landfill will no longer be open to the public for disposal of construction and demolition debris. Coos County will accept the debris at the Beaver Hill Transfer Station on Highway 101 and then have it taken to a landfill out of county for disposal. The Beaver Hill site is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8am to 4:30pm.

In April of 2013 the fee for construction/demolition debris was set by the Coos County Board of Commissioners as follows: $20.50 @ LCY (loose cubic yard) or $87.27 @ ton if charged by the weight. The construction/demolition debris will be charged for by the loose cubic yard or on its weight, whichever results in the higher gross revenue to the County. The County still has a disposal fee for clean wood and brush at $6.00 LCY so there may be an advantage for the public to take the time to separate materials.
