  • Fax that form to Waste Connections (landfill owner) at Fax number: (360)-695-5091
  • Once Waste Connections receives (and approves) that form, you will be contacted with permission to bring the asbestos to that landfill.
  • *You need to double-bag the Asbestos, and preferably ‘wet’ it to reduce the possibility of becoming airborne.
  • Wasco County Landfill hours: Monday-Friday, 7am-4pm.
