Public Service Announcement

 Watertown Regional Landfill

Spring Yard Waste Drop-off Site

April 25th through May 9th 2020


The Watertown Regional Landfill will operate the Yard Waste Drop-off Site this spring.  The site will be open to receive residential yard waste from Saturday, April 25th through Saturday, May 9th 2020.  The site is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  The site is closed Sundays and Mondays

Hours of operation are 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM; disposal is only permitted during these hours.  The Site is located east of Municipal Utilities at the 4th Ave. S.W. Bridge. 

Materials accepted free at the yard waste site include residential grass, leaves, garden vegetation and bushes.  Tree limbs up to 6” in. diameter and 6’ in length are also accepted.  

Residents will dump their waste out of their containers or bags into dumpsters provided by the City.  Residents using their 95-gallon yard waste containers will unload them from their vehicle and will remain socially distanced from the Landfill staff.  The Landfill staff will then dump the 95 gallon yard waste containers using a rear-load or automated side-load truck.

Residents with loose pickup or trailer loads are required to take the loads to the Landfill.  These secured loads will be accepted free of charge at the Landfill with a current Municipal Utility bill.  Entering the Landfill with an unsecured load will result in a charge of twice the normal tipping fee.


Free disposal privileges are for Watertown residents only.  Commercial or contractor loads will be charged the appropriate tipping fee for the incoming load.  People without a current Watertown Municipal Utility bill will be charged the appropriate tipping fee for the incoming load.

All loads entering the Yard waste site on 4th Ave. S.W. and the Landfill are required to be securely covered to prevent littering.


General information regarding the Landfill including location, hours of operation, container repair, and rates is located on the City’s website at
