​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​News & Updates​​​​

  • ​​Residential Rate Increase Update At the public hearing with the County Board of Supervisors (Board) on January 12, 2021, the Board voted to increase residential solid waste collection rates with a $5.00 increase effective March 1, 2021, and another $5.00 increase effective January 1, 2022.  The $5.00 increase applies to the standard 30-gallon, 60-gallon, and 90-gallon garbage service which includes one recycling cart and one green waste cart.  The full rate schedule showing all Board approved rates is posted here.     

  • Treated Wood Waste (fence posts, railroad ties, pilings, decking, etc.,):  Effective January 1, 2021, treated wood waste, which is any wood that has been treated with chemical preservatives, will no longer be accepted for disposal at Kiefer Landfill and cannot be accepted 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 advise is to keep your treated wood on site.  For more information, visit https://dtsc.ca.gov/toxics-in-products/treated-wood-waste/.  Exemptions apply to treated wood waste that has been removed from electric, gas, or telephone service and that meets HSC 25143.1.5 requirements at Kiefer Landfill only. 
  • New Facility Fees: Effective November 1, 2020, there are new facility fees at the North Area Recovery Station and the Kiefer Landfill.  Visit the Facility Fees page for more information.

  • COVID Update:  All Department of Waste Management and Recycling's services and facilities are continuing to operate uninterrupted at this time.  For information on Countywide services, visit County Departments: What's Open/Closed/Modified​.  For Countywide COVID information, visit www.saccounty.net/COVID-19 for the most recent press releases and guidelines on COVID-19.​
