The Wayne Township Landfill, owned and operated by
the Clinton County Solid Waste Authority is focused on
reducing, reusing, recycling and managing solid waste in
ways that serve and preserve the local community best.
Our goal is to ensure the quality and longevity of Clinton
County by properly disposing of waste materials and reusing
and/or recycling materials in the best way possible.
