Public Convenience Center (PCC)

Trans-Jordan built a the Public Convenience Center (PCC) as a safe , convenient, environmentally responsible alternative to the traditional “dump” experience. The PCC allows most residential customers to drop-off their waste onto a large concrete pad rather than the waste cell with the large commercial haulers. The PCC gives residential customers an opportunity to have a cleaner, safer and more pleasant experience at the landfill.

In addition to the concrete drop-off area, the PCC also features an area that residents can drop off Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and Recyclable Materials.
