The Coffey County Sanitary Landfill is a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill site. The total landfill area is approximately 38 acres, consisting of two landfill units which include the original 14-acre landfill and the 24-acre lateral expansion landfill.
The landfill fees support the operating expenses, solid waste disposal issues, and environmental concerns. Fees are based on the type and weight of materials brought to the landfill.
Coffey County has opened a landfill designated solely for Construction and Demolition waste. Only acceptable construction and demolition waste may be placed in this landfill, where each load will be visually screened at the scale house to determine if it is acceptable for disposal.
