Trash & Landfill - Residential Program

Allegany County Government has a residential/household trash sticker solid waste disposal system. A trash sticker must be attached to each trash bag or item brought for disposal to an Allegany County Operated Residential Refuse Site. Each trash sticker costs $1.00 and is bright pink. 

Anyone can use the scales at the Mountainview Landfill as it's a private company.

If you are looking for trash PICK-UP services, please reach out to a local waste removal provider. Our service is for drop-off only. 


  • One Trash Sticker is required for one garbage bag 40 gallon maximum.
  • One Trash Sticker is required for one garbage can 40 pound maximum.
  • A maximum of 10 garbage bags/garbage cans per day per resident is permitted.
  • A maximum of 2 bulk items per day per resident is permitted for items requiring 6 or more trash stickers due to space limitations at the refuse disposal sites.
