Buckhead Mesa Landfill to hold free Appliance and Metal Discard Event

The Buckhead Mesa Landfill will coordinate an appliance disposal “free day” on Saturday, September 14th from 8 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You are encouraged to dispose of unwanted refrigerators, freezers, washers, dish washers, dryers, portable trash compactors and water heaters. Other metal items will also be accepted.

Gila County will waive the landfill fee for the weight of all appliances and for the freon from the refrigerators and freezers.  The County will also handle the freon removal from the appliances, so participants should NOT tamper with the freon lines.  Also, there should be no trash of any kind inside the appliances.

 All other debris will be accepted for the normal landfill fee.  Residents are encouraged to separate the appliance and metal items from other trash so that landfill personnel can exclude the weight of those items when calculating landfill fees.

This is a great opportunity to rid your property of old appliances and metal items for free!

For more information on this event, call the landfill at (928) 425-7470.
