City residents have options for refuse despite landfill closing

The Huntington Street Department will send out a grappler truck like this one to pick up old furniture and other large items through its orange sticker program. It’s just one of the ways city residents can continue to dispose of unwanted items after the Huntington City Landfill closes on March 29.

The Huntington City Landfill is set to close on March 29, but residents of the City of Huntington will still have a variety of options for getting rid of their unwanted items.

City crews can be requested to pick up large items that won’t fit in a trash can, as well as bagged or bundled yard waste. Household hazardous waste can still be dropped off at the Hazardous Materials Facility on CR 300W.

One of the ongoing programs is the orange sticker program, something City Services Superintendent Bob Caley characterizes as “city-wide cleanup all year long.”
