The Harvey County Solid Waste Department strives to dispose of solid waste the most economically and environmentally sound methods available, while also adhering to current regulations. The department continuously looks for alternative methods of solid waste disposal in order to provide a more sustainable living environment in Harvey County. We are committed to providing service in a friendly, professional manner.

Our goals are to divert as much waste from the landfill stream as is economically feasible, to keep our facilities aesthetically appealing and to be mindful of costs.
