The Haywood County Solid Waste Department has a Transfer Station and a Class III-IV landfill. The Transfer Station accepts household and municipal waste which is transferred to a landfill out of county.

Class III-IV Landfill accepts construction and/or demolition scrap and yard waste.

An anti-litter crew collects trash five days a week. Roadsides and illegal dump sites are picked up using an area rotation system. The Solid Waste Department also collects the household waste from county residents at a number of designated pick-up points throughout the county. This is handled by three garbage trucks, which run routes during the week.

In addition to the Director, the department operates with 12 full-time employees.
