Sanitation & Recycling
The Dighton, Kansas contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection. The City of Dighton bills each resident for 1 trash cart. If you required a second cart or a larger cart/dumpster please call Northend Disposal at 1-888-303-3371.
Most household trash, when properly bundled and/or contained properly, can be disposed of at curbside on your regular garbage service days. Trash collection is as follows: south of Highway 96 on Monday, downtown/businesses Wednesday, & north of Highway 96 on Thursday. We recommend that you put your trash containers curbside the night before your collection day.
