Yolo County hazardous waste facility observes Thanksgiving holiday

In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, the collection of household hazardous waste will not occur at the Yolo County Central Landfill’s Hazardous Waste Facility on Friday, November 28.

With the exception of this date, the Yolo County Division of Integrated Waste Management holds weekly collection of household hazardous waste at the landfill, located at 44090 County Road 28H in Woodland, every Friday and Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.   The facility will be open the Friday and Saturday directly following both the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays. 

During the holidays many generate more waste and are busier than normal.  To encourage residents to properly dispose of their household hazardous waste, the Division of Integrated Waste Management will be handing out 2015 Recycling Calendars to all residents bringing in hazardous waste after Christmas.

America Recycles Day in Yolo County November 15

November 15, 2014 is designated as America Recycles Day.  To participate, along with thousands of other local organizers holding recycling events across the country, Yolo County is hosting a free tire recycling and used oil filter exchange on Saturday, November 15, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Esparto Recycling & Transfer Station, located at 27075 County Road 19A in Esparto.

“Recyclable items that we use every day are recoverable resources that can be manufactured into new and valuable products,” said Yolo County Planning, Public Works & Environmental Services Director Taro Echiburú.  “Together, we can reduce the billions of dollars’ worth of materials thrown away each year, and work to give that tire or oil filter another life through recycling.”
