Hazardous Waste (like paint, oil, chemicals, etc.,)
Beginning January 1, 2021, Treated Wood Waste (fence posts, railroad ties, pilings, decking, etc.,) will no longer be accepted in this program or at any County facilities. This material will need to be managed as hazardous waste and transported to a Class I hazardous waste landfill for disposal. At this point in time, we don't have alternatives. This is a change in state regulations that impacts all of California. We are working with local hazardous materials companies to find a solution. In the meantime, our best advice is to keep your treated wood on site. For more information, visit https://dtsc.ca.gov/toxics-in-products/treated-wood-waste/.
