Why do I have to pay $10 to dispose of a mattress?

Mattresses cannot be easily recycled or compacted so they are hauled to the Evergreen Regional site where the County pays for each mattress to be shredded. 

By doing this, it reduces our local landfill volumes and helps ensure there is room for all your waste.

No Fee Disposals

  • Appliances (stoves, washers, dryers, dishwashers, microwaves, hot water tanks, barbeques)
  • Household and office furniture (tables & chairs, couches and desks, TV’s, stereos, computers)
  • Un-bagged leaves, grass, garden waste for composting
  • Salvageable Scrap Metal
  • Burnable Materials
  • Tires
  • Trees, Shrubs
  • Wet Batteries (cars)
  • Dry Batteries (Dry Cell)

Spring Clean Up Program 

Smoky Lake County is offers annually FREE disposal of appliances containing Freon at County Landfill sites for all residents of the Smoky Lake Region during the month of May.
