The Construction and Demolition Debris Program inspects all open and closed construction and demolition debris landfills within Montgomery County to ensure that disposal is protective of the environment and the public’s health. In addition, selected private wells near disposal sites are sampled to monitor ground water quality and complaints of open dumping are investigated.
Report open dumping by calling Public Health at (937) 225-4362.

What is “clean hard fill?”
Clean hard fill consists of concrete, asphalt, brick, block, tile and stone which is free of other types of waste.
Must “clean hard fill” be disposed of at a licensed facility?
No. If it is free of other waste, it does not need to go to a licensed facility. However, many C&DD facilities have a separate area designated for clean hard fill disposal or recycling.
Can I bring in concrete to fill my property?
Probably. Concrete and other clean hard fill may be brought onto a site to raise the grade if certain standards are followed. The filling operation cannot create a public health nuisance, violate wetlands and floodplain laws or local zoning codes. Public Health must be notified in writing prior to the start of filling.
