There is a one load limit per household on “Free Dump Weekend” accepted at the Transfer Station. Additional loads or an initial load larger than standard size load, must go to the Landfill.

All non-City of Lamar residents and commercial businesses including tree trimmers and contractors do not qualify for the “Free Weekend” and must pay the current rates at both the Landfill and Transfer Station. Burn barrels will not be accepted at the Transfer Station, but can be disposed of at the Landfill and dumping fees will be charged.
