The demolition landfill is located off Black Bridge Road just east of Highway 51. The demolition landfill serves all of Rock County. All vehicles must check with attendant before using the demolition landfill or compost site. They must have wastes covered with a tarpaulin (unless waste consists of brush only). It is the responsibility of the hauler to retrieve any and all items that fall out of his or her vehicle during transport. Failure to retrieve such items is a violation of City ordinance. The City reserves the right to refuse any load of waste.
