Landfill

Type of facilities:

Virgin Valley Disposal operates the City of Mesquite’s Municipal Class 1 Landfill.  The landfill was designed for the Virgin Valley area.  All customers who so choose to use this landfill will be charged by the cubic yard.  All loads transported to the landfill must be covered and secured.

For proper classification of the waste you bring to the landfill, gate keepers may ask specific questions about  your load to better understand what type of waste you are bringing into the landfill.

Tires

NO tires can be disposed in a landfill that accepts municipal solid waste and is located in the State of Nevada.  To help control this Virgin Valley Disposal, Inc. has taken measures to help our customers.  We have placed a trailer at the landfill for storing used tires.  These tires will be separated from the wasted stream and stored in the trailer for transportation to a proper facility.  If you have used tires you can bring your tires to the landfill for a nominal fee. 

The fee covers the cost of hauling tires to a recycling facility. 

Tires can be brought to the City of Mesquites Landfill during our Scale House hours.

Residents participation in the 90 Gallon Automated System can dispose of four (4) passenger car or light truck tires per month free of charge in accordance to Chapter 2 Section 4-2-4B.

Commercial & Residential Passenger Care & Light Truck Tires                          $1.50 per tire

Commercial Truck Tires up to size 11/24.5                                                          $4.00 per tire
