Operations and Services
Personnel and Training
Bi-County's strength is in
its people. They know their jobs and they do them well. Their service to the
community goes beyond their jobs at Bi-County Landfill. Many Bi-County employees
contribute to local charities, volunteer their time during community events and
serve on community boards.
All persons are trained and certified on the equipment they operate.
This allows them to operate efficiently and safely. All departments
conduct monthly safety meetings to insure their safety and the safety of
the public. Other training includes, but is not limited to the
- CPR Training
- Management Training
- First Aid Training
- Hazardous Materials Training
- Waste Screening
- Specialized Training
- Landfill Operations Training
Bi-County has operated several years with no lost time accidents and
has received several safety awards reflecting this accomplishment.
Bi-County inspects 5% of all incoming loads and will inspect all suspicious loads as deemed necessary by Bi-County staff.
Bi-County personnel construct their lining systems with an in house
crew. This keeps the costs well below the average of about $350,000.00
All waste going into the Bi-County Landfill is weighed via a
computerized digital scale. Information on the waste hauler; which
county it comes from; and how much waste was received, is kept on file
