Household Confidential Burn

We operate a convenient household confidential burn program to assist residents of Pope and Douglas Counties with their confidential and/or sensitive documents.

Documents are dumped directly into a waste combustor for direct waste to energy incineration.

Materials are not sent through the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF).

Packaging and Drop-Off Guidelines

Packaging Guidelines: 

  • Evaluate the materials you would like incinerated.
  • Bag up materials for incineration.  Bags will be incinerated.
  • Only plastic ‘grocery store style’ bags accepted.
  • Bags must be tied shut.
  • Up to three (3) bags per household per day.
  • No loose or boxed up materials will be accepted.
  • Failure to follow the guidelines and protocols established will result in additional disposal costs and/or rejection of materials received for disposal. Any unacceptable materials received for disposal shall be returned to the party delivering materials.

Drop-off Guidelines:

  • Bring BAGGED “confidential” papers to the Main Office.
  • Drop off days are M-F 8:00-12:00 AND 1:00-4:00 (closed on major holidays).
