  •  Self-haul yard waste to Eastern Regional Landfill
    Eastern Regional Landfill is now open Monday – Saturday. Drop off 6 yards of yard waste for FREE! Face masks are required for entry. Bring your ID and a proof of residency, i.e. utility bill.
    New this year: receive an address-specific punch card to track the number of yards dropped off. These cards are transferable! Contractors, friends, or relatives can drop-off materials on your behalf with your punch card for free.
    NO bags, please. If your yard waste is in plastic bags to transport, you’ll need to empty your bags when you arrive.
  •  Green waste dumpster rentals available NOW! Call TTSD to order: (530) 583-7800

How to use  your green waste cart:

  • No plastic bags; place yard waste materials directly in: pine needles, grass clippings, pine cones, branches, shrubs
  • On your collection day, place your cart curbside by 6 am, with the wheels facing away from the street. The cart must be 3 feet apart from other objects.
  • Serviced May – November, every-other week
  • Never miss a pickup: set up e-mail reminders.

Please note that the green bag program ended June 30, 2018 for all residents; green bags will no longer be collected free of charge.
