Kingsport’s landfill is a demolition landfill. This means they can accept anything except household garbage. While the trash items are dumped and buried, brush and pallets are ground up for wood chips. This has helped to expand the estimated life span of our landfill to seventy years.
The landfill fee is $40.00 per ton/pro-rated, with loads under 1,000 pounds $20.00.
Kingsport City residents get 12 free dumps at the landfill each year. Individuals will need a valid drivers licenses or current water bill for proof of address (must be inside the city limits). A truck and a trailer is two dumps. (NO big dump trucks or commercial vehicles can dump free). The 12 dumps can be utilized anytime during the year.
