Douglas County owns and operates the Cedar Mountain Landfill and the Camp Road Transfer Station.  Both facilities are funded by the Landfill Enterprise Fund, which is solely supported by user fees.  No tax dollars are used for the operation and maintenance of the Landfill and Transfer Station, including salaries, equipment and other costs.  This is a requirement of State law, to which the County strictly adheres.  The Landfill Enterprise Fund has been in existence since the mid-1990s, and is overseen by the Douglas County Board of Commissioners.

Since costs increase over time, periodically the Board of Commissioners is required to raise tipping fees/disposal rates to ensure that the Landfill Enterprise Fund can cover all of the costs of the operation and maintenance.  The Board of Commissioners voted September 5th for a rate increase to become effective October 1st.  This is the first rate increase since 2005.

The Cedar Mountain Landfill and Camp Road Transfer Station are open Monday – Saturday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., and are closed on Sundays and County holidays.

The new rates effective October 1st are as follows.
