Dump for free on Saturday

Big Horn County residents can dump their trash for free at either the north or south landfills between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 21.

The free-dump day was requested by the county’s mayors and recently approved by the Big Horn County Landfill Board.

A free dump day has not been allowed for several years.

Town employees in Greybull will be stationing compactor trucks at two locations for people who are unable to take items to the landfill. Those locations are the parking lot across from town hall on South Fifth Street, and the Ron’s Food Farm west parking lot on North Sixth Street.

The landfill is requesting that metal be separated from loads, that each family make only one trip, and that trucks be limited to 26,000 GVW.

“Overall, this is a great opportunity for all of us to clean up our properties,” said Mayor Bob Graham.

A free community barbecue has been planned in conjunction with the event. Ron’s Food Farm and the Town of Greybull are providing the food and the Greybull Fire Department has agreed to handle the cooking. Burgers and hotdogs will be served at the Fire Hall between noon and 1:30 p.m. A can will be set out for people wishing to donate to the fire department.
