Dump and Recycling Information

The dump by the Smithville Warehouse, located at 1000 SE MLK, is used for construction trash only. When using the dump, you will be charged a fee for the amount of trash you bring. You receive a ticket to take to city hall, where you will be asked to pay, and then the ticket will be stamped. You will then bring the ticket back to the dump and be allowed to dump your trash.
