SacGreenTeam Updates​

The Bulky Waste Pickup appointment schedule is temporarily unavailable: A limited number of Bulky Waste Pickup appointments may be available by mid-June and gradually increasing to a full schedule this fall 2022. The temporary service suspension is necessary for training newly hired employees to double route frequency for weekly curbside collection of organics starting July 2022. For disposal options, the North Area Recovery Station and Kiefer Landfill are open daily and accept household garbage/hazardous waste and a number of items for free from residents. ​ 

Facility Fee Increases – Weighed Loads:  Fee increases for weighed loads will be effective on January 1, 2022 at the North Area Recovery Station and Kiefer Landfill. These new fees are necessary to offset the rising cost of inflation in order for the County to continue providing solid waste services in a cost-effective manner and to achieve regulatory compliance with new State regulations. All other fees remain unchanged. For the complete list of fees, please visit the Facilities Fees page. ​

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.  ​

Residential Service: Some common​ items c​annot be accepted in Sacramento County recycling carts.  Film plastics, like plastic bags, plastic food wrap, plastic food storage bags, bubble wrap​, etc. goes in the garbage cart. Shredded paper (which must be bagged and placed in your garbage cart to prevent windblown litter).  Cartons - ​​There are two types of cartons.  Refrigerated cartons are for products such as milk, juice, cream, and egg substitutes and shelf-stable cartons are for products such as juice, milk, soy milk, soup, broth and wine.  Both should be placed in the Garbage cart - January 2019.
