County Landfill Operational Changes

Published: March 24, 2020

The Catawba County Landfill and five county Convenience Centers are open and operating on a normal schedule. In observance of social distancing recommendations, the Catawba County Landfill is making the following temporary changes to its operations:

  • Landfill offices will be closed to the public. A phone number will be posted at all office access doors. Visitors may call the number to get in touch with an employee for directions or answers to questions.
  • Scale attendants will operate as usual except for the provision of safety vests. Prepackaged safety vests will be handed out unopened and will not need to be returned.
  • Operators will perform load inspections and provide instructions from their cabs. As a result, this process may take longer and/or require customers to go to another dumping area.

Landfill and convenience center operational days and hours have not changed and are listed below as a reminder. Please call (704) 462-1348 with any questions or concerns.
