The Habersham County Solid Waste Management Department is responsible for operating the Habersham County Landfill and Recycling Programs.
The Habersham County Landfill is located at 4900 Dicks Hill Parkway in Mt. Airy. Its goal is to provide environmentally sound, cost-effective waste management to the people of Habersham County. The Department complies with all federal, state and local ordinances.

The solid waste department is currently in the process of arranging for disposal of tires and household electronic items. Check this website for additional information.
The department is operated as an enterprise fund and does not directly include any general tax revenues. All landfill users pay the landfill tipping fees. The current charge for using the landfill is $41.50 per ton ($42.50 starting January 1, 2013) with a minimum charge of $3, except for recycled items, which are free. All vehicles, even those just bringing recycled items, are required to pass over the scale going into and out of the landfill. All loads must be covered to prevent trash and garbage from falling out.
Habersham County does not provide curbside pickup. Contact your city or town hall or an independent contractor to arrange service if available at your address.
