Inert Landfill


Inert Landfill Operations

The City of Devils Lake operates an inert landfill which is open all year round. It is located 5 miles North on Highway 20 and 1 1/2 miles West.  Hours of operation are by appointment at 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m., Monday - Friday. There are additional dates and times available for City residents with can service during the Spring and Fall Clean Up, see below. Free landfill days are not available to accounts that have dumpster service. Call the Sanitation Department at (701) 662-7624 or City Office at (701) 662-7600, ext. 1 to make an appointment or to ask questions about what is acceptable.

A PICTURE ID SHOWING CURRENT ADDRESS IS REQUIRED PRIOR

The fees for taking items to the inert landfill can be found under Fees and Rates, Inert Landfill Rates.
Non-city residents will be charged two (2) times the regular rates at the inert landfill.
