COVID-19 UPDATE: No change to operational days and hours. Face coverings are required in Department of Waste Management and Recycling buildings, facilities, and while on County property.
Secure Your Load! It's the law. California State Vehicle Code Sections 23114 and 23115 require that loads be properly covered or secured in a manner that prevents any part of a load from falling out of a vehicle. On September 22, 2020, the County Board of Supervisors approved charging a fee of $25 per load, effective November 1, 2020, for unsecured loads at the North Area Recovery Station (NARS) or the Kiefer Landfill. The fee is intended to encourage customer compliance with State law in order to reduce roadside littering, and will provide some revenue to help offset the County's costs to clean up roadside litter and illegal dumping. For the first six months from November 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021, the Department of Waste Management & Recycling (DWMR) provided educational outreach to customers who use these facilities to inform them of this law and the new $25 fee. Beginning May 1, 2021, the $25 fee is being charged on unsecured loads at Kiefer Landfill and NARS. You can secure your load by using tarps, straps, rope, bungee cords or netting. Keep the load secured until reaching the tipping area. This prevents littering on site.
