Miramar Landfill is a division of the City of San Diego's Environmental Services Department.
ATTENTION LANDFILL VISITORS: In response to the directives from Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer and Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Centers for Disease Control and local health authorities, to adapt operations and continue to provide essential service while safely doing so for our employees and customers, effective Tuesday, March 24 until further notice, the Miramar Landfill and Greenery will no longer be accepting cash, checks or credit card transactions. Customers interested in utilizing the landfill and greenery, will still be able to do so by establishing an account online through the City’s Deferred Payment Account services webpage. Accounts established will be required to open a deferred payment account or outgoing material deferred payment account for a minimum surety bond amount of $250. New deferred payment account customers can anticipate new account number and ability to use the landfill about one to two business days after completed application is received. Current customers that maintain accounts, including franchise haulers, city forces and the US Navy, will still be able to conduct business at the landfill and greenery. Thank you for your understanding, support and customer loyalty as we continue to provide the best and safest service possible. For information on accessing the Miramar Landfill Monday through Friday during normal business hours, or other questions, please email [email protected]
INCLEMENT WEATHER: Due to rain or other weather-related issues at the landfill and greenery operations, the City, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to temporarily close to vehicles with trailers. This would occur in the event conditions at the tipping deck are not conducive to the maneuvering of vehicles with trailers. It becomes a safety issue to both the public and our employees and a hindrance to operations when dealing with incapacitated vehicles.
