Traffic & Delays at Landfills & Yard Waste Facilities

Weekends are always busy at local landfills, but the suspension of bulky item collection and increased use of landfill passes for city property owners has resulted in record-level traffic, especially small vehicles. Lines are sometimes beyond the gate. Before departing for a Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities landfill, residents are reminded to:
*Check hours of operation for all four facilities at cityofws.org/landfill
*Expect facilities to be busy and follow posted rules
*Practice patience and social distancing with other citizens and employees
*Avoid Saturday congestion by arriving earlier in the day and visiting on weekdays
*Cover open loads with secured tarps
*Review requirements and vehicle/trailer specifications under Landfill Permit Application on cityofws.org/landfill

If you are a property owner in the City of Winston-Salem applying for a landfill permit, please note that there are currently delays due to the high volume of requests. For more information, please call City Link 311 or 336-727-8000.
