Pawnee County Solid Waste Facility
The Pawnee County Solid Waste Facility is a convenient drive just minutes south of Larned. The facility handles household trash, demolition and construction waste, tree and shrub waste, metal, and grass clippings.
The Landfill will be experiencing some maintenance work between the dates of October 16th-20th, 2023. During this time trash trucks will not be dumping at the landfill however they will be picking up your trash and taking it to another landfill during this time period. If you have small trash items you may bring them out. We will still be accepting construction and demolition waste along with limbs, brush, metal, and grass clippings. If you have any questions please call us at 620-285-2016.

Grass Clippings and Tree Branches
The Pawnee County Landfill has a dump site for grass clippings right inside the front gate. There are a few simple rules to follow:
1) Please keep all trash out of the clippings. It is important that this is done because we recycle the material.
2) If you bag your clippings dump them on the pile and place the empty bag in the trash can.
3) Please remember that all branches and tree clippings go to the burn pile.
Remember that the Landfill hours on Saturday are now 8AM UNTIL 4:30PM
Household Hazardous Waste
Pawnee County Landfill has teamed up with Barton County Landfill to offer 2 days each year (usually the first Saturday in May and then again in October) to help citizens dispose of their hazardous products that tend to pile up around the garage and basement. These are materials that can't otherwise be thrown away as regular trash such as poisons, paint, batteries, oil, solvents, household cleaners, photographic chemicals, pool chemicals, mothballs, and disinfectants. Please review the "Guide For Disposing of Products" below to get a more detailed list of items to bring (and not to bring) on collection day. This is all in an effort to safeguard our environment here in Pawnee County. These are materials and chemicals that may leach into ground water. Please feel free to call with any questions at 620-285-2016.
