We appreciated your understanding during the  few months of limited public access to the Hoffman Road Landfill.  The landfill reopened to the public on Saturday, May 30, 2020 which was also our first free disposal day for City of Toledo residents. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FREE DISPOSAL DAY SCHEDULED FOR JULY 11, 2020 AT THE LANDFILL IS CANCELLED.  THE LANDFILL WILL NOT BE OPEN THAT DAY.  Current landfill hours are from 8:00 a.m, to 3:00 p.m. , Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.  The remaining free disposal days are expected to continue as scheduled on September 12 and November 28.

The wellbeing of both our staff and customers is a top priority. When coming to the landfill, please follow the recommended safety precautions:
