​​​​​​​​​​​News & Updates​

  • The Sacramento County Public Health Order (Order) June 29, 2020, will be in effect until it is rescinded or amended by the Health Officer.  The Order continues to reinforce the direction that all individuals stay home as much as possible and carry on with social distancing protocols while beginning to relax restrictions on certain businesses.  The County’s Department of Waste Management and Recycling is operating the North Area Recovery Station (NARS), the Household Hazardous Waste Facility, and Kiefer Landfill as essential infrastructures providing essential services. Keeping these facilities open supports the County’s residential curbside collection of garbage as well as essential businesses as identified in the Order.  Help us reduce our employee’s exposure, and your own, by complying with the Order.  Please consider whether your planned trip to these facilities qualifies as essential.  When possible, stay home – and stay healthy. Facility hours may change without notice due to the Order.  If you must visit our facilities, expect longer than usual wait times.
