Concrete & Block
In an effort to increase waste diversion in Flagstaff, the Cinder Lake Landfill is conducting a pilot study on the diversion of concrete waste. Starting ; waste loads containing concrete and/or cinder blocks will not be charged the normal tipping fee of $45.75 per ton.
Concrete loads must be weighed on the scales and inspected by Scale House Staff prior to disposal. In order to dump for free, loads must be free of any contaminants, which include:
- Organic Matter (trees, limbs, trash, etc.)
