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 $32.00 per ton/pro-rated, with loads under 1,000 pounds $16.00.
