The City of Ponca City owns and operates a municipal landfill located southwest of the City. The landfill serves Kay County and parts of Osage, Noble, and Grant counties. The site was permitted in 1989 and has been continuously serving north-central Oklahoma ever since.
The public, whether commercial or individual, is welcome to bring their trash and debris to the Ponca City Landfill for disposal. Call the Landfill for their hours of operation, charges, and a listing of prohibited materials.
The current cell (cell #3) is a fully compliant sub title D cell. What this means is that the cell is constructed of a compacted clay sub grade, covered with a thick geo-membrane and geo-fabric which is covered over with a protective layer of sand. A leachate collection system is also a part of this liner system.
Landfill Cell #3 was completed and placed in service in 2008. It is anticipated this nine-acre cell will last about 10 years at current volumes. Life expectancy of the entire 80-acre site is estimated at 80 years using current volume figures.
The Landfill Compactor
A compactor is the most useful machine at the landfill. It weighs 52,000 pounds and is used to compact the trash into a very tight, “compacted” layer. This important piece of equipment enables the landfill crew to put more trash into less space, maximizing the room in the landfill and prolonging the life of the landfill cells.
