The Thompson Landfill will be extending their hours for the summer.
Mayor Colleen Smook explains.
“Basically we’re open on Saturdays now from 8 to 3:30. So you have to have your last load in there before 3:30 or you won’t get in. The hazardous waste days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and you can also take your electronics there, too, on those days.”
There will also be a free landfill day in the city for spring, which will be on June first.
However, for certain items that are tossed into the landfill, there will be a fee, as the mayor explains.
“The only charge there still will be is for mattresses and couches – 20 dollars – because we do have to pay to get them shredded, so there is a large cost.”
