Wood Waste Diversion Program at SEMCO Landfill

SEMCO now has a wood waste diversion program!

All Lumber, Pallets, and brush may be disposed of at SEMCO Landfill for $30 per ton. You can save $25 per ton off the tipping fee by sorting your waste and loading it separately. Eligible Materials must be free from contamination (Nails, screws, and staples are ok) and not exceed 10 feet in length. Contaminated loads dumped on the wood waste will be charged the regular tipping fee of $55 per ton plus a $100 clean up fee. 

Wood waste will be ground into wood chips and be made available free of charge. 

You must load your own wood chips. Please call the landfill at 319-456-6171 to inquire if any chips are available before you drive out .
