As a homeowner, it’s important to know what you can and cannot bring to our landfill sorting station. All sorts of projects generate all sorts of different types of waste. The City of Galena Construction and Demolition (C&D) landfill has a sorting station that is designed to help you dispose of that waste in a responsible and safe manner. Today we’ll go over the items that are permitted, as well as the items that are not permitted at the sorting station. Keep in mind this is not a comprehensive list, and if you have any questions, please give us a call!

Permitted C&D Materials

The sorting station at the City of Galena landfill allows you to dispose of a variety of C&D materials, including concrete, wood from buildings, asphalt from roads and roofing shingles, gypsum, metals, bricks, soil, and rocks, glass and fiberglass, plastics from construction sites, salvaged building components (doors, windows, and plumbing fixtures), tree stumps, earth and rock from clearing sites, mattresses and box springs, and furniture that has a structure of wood or metal.

Non-C&D Permitted Items

In addition to C&D materials, you can also dispose of non-C&D items such as plastic toys, play structures, buckets and bottles, regular household trash, dry paint cans and caulking tubes, tires (cars, trucks, semi-trucks, farm vehicles), cardboard, paper, plastics, and electronics.

Items Not Permitted

There are certain items that are not permitted at the sorting station, including household chemicals, lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries, and electrical equipment containing hazardous materials. These items can pose a risk to the environment and human health, so it’s important to dispose of them properly.
