The City of Henderson Landfill is giving its customers additional ways to pay for its service.
On November 5, 2018, the Henderson Landfill will accept credit and debit card payments. Currently, the landfill only accepts cash and check payments. Customers will not have to pay additional fees for the card payments but will still need to show proof of residency.
For the Transfer Station/Convenience Center (regular household trash), there will be no charge to Henderson City and County residents. For businesses and out of Henderson County residents, it will cost $38.75 per ton, with a minimum $10 charge plus state fee.
CD&D (construction debris, limbs, dirt, concrete and “top of the hill” material):
$5 for up to 400 pounds for Henderson City/County residential customers.
$25 per ton prorated for Henderson City/County residential customers.
$12 for up to 400 pounds for Henderson City/County commercial customers.
$60 per ton prorated for Henderson City/County commercial customers.
$18 for up to 400 pounds for out of Henderson County residents.
$90 per ton prorated for out of Henderson County residents.
Last year, the landfill reached capacity, so the charges were set to offset disposal fees and the cost of transporting CD&D material to the Daviess County landfill.
