The proper disposal of contaminated soil
The Dry Creek Landfill is approved by the State of Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to accept certain petroleum contaminated soils. The landfill can also accept contaminated soil from construction and demolition operations. Under certain circumstances, we can accept soil contaminated with asbestos for disposal. If there is contaminated soil with asbestos, we will determine if it can be accepted, and if so, whether it needs to be taken to the asbestos monofil or lined cell areas within the landfill. Please click here for more asbestos information. Please note that we cannot accept any hazardous or PCB-regulated materials. Materials with low-level PCB contamination may be acceptable. Call our Main Office at 541.779.4161 for more information.
