The Amherst County Landfill in Madison Heights. 

Effective July 1 the hours of operation have been changed for some Amherst County solid waste convenience centers.

“This change will provide standard, easy-to-remember site hours for each convenience center. It will also help to reduce salary, overhead, and hauling costs for the County,” Brian Thacker, Amherst County’s public works director, said in a news release.

The 60 East Convenience Center, 114 Park Lane; Pedlar Convenience Center, 4102 Buffalo Springs Turnpike; Warrick Barn Convenience Center, 1015 Warrick Barn Road and Dodds Store Convenience Center, 4818 Lexington Turnpike each will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and close on Tuesday and Thursday.
