About the Landfill
The landfill must comply with all reporting requirements of the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC). The landfill permit specifies how the City must safely store, process and dispose of waste materials. All waste must be disposed of in accordance with the rules and orders of the TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) and the laws of the State of Texas. Nothing in the permit exempts the City from compliance with any applicable environmental rules, regulations, or laws.
Wood Chips Available
The City of Big Spring Landfill has wood chips available for free to the community. These wood chips can be used for mulching around trees and flowerbeds and are ideal for padding children's play areas. Wood chips are available at the Landfill during normal hours of operation.
