Citizens of Clearwater County reside in perhaps one of the most beautiful locations in this great land. The task of maintaining this environment has to be a team effort. It is our goal to maintain this clean and healthy environment.

Residents of Clearwater County can dispose of household waste items year round at the Clearwater County Transfer Station in Orofino, Idaho and at the Timberline Container Site in Weippe at no additional charge. Commercial and demolition charges may apply.

The Clearwater County solid waste collection and disposal started out as a solid waste landfill owned by a private contractor. It was taken over by the County in 1994 and changed from a landfill site to a transfer station. Waste is separated into its proper area. Household waste is loaded into trailers and transported to Asotin County Landfill. Useable items are placed in the ClearMart Store.  

Non-municipal solid waste is collected at the transfer station and transported to a tier two landfill operated by Clearwater County and located at the Timberline site between Pierce and Weippe. The site and transfer station operate under Public Health and IDEQ guidelines.
