Our current Solid Waste services are provided through a Solid Waste Franchise Agreement with Waste Connections of California, Inc. dba El Dorado Disposal valid through Feb 2023.  Please visit their website for specific service information at, or contact them by phone at (530) 626-4141.

Organics/Green Waste

  • Biweekly curbside collection. If a resident frequently generates more waste than one green can will accommodate, a second can may be added to your service in most cases at no additional monthly cost.
  • New in 2022 - your food waste and food soiled paper should be placed in your green waste container.  This is refered to as Organic Waste Collection.  There are some restrictions for the type of food containers that can be placed in the green waste container (rule of thumb - if it has plastic, it goes in your trash receptacle).  For more on food waste check out this useful guide: Organic Waste Collection Guide
  • Each year, residents receive green waste vouchers from El Dorado Disposal. These vouchers allow for scheduled pick-up of green waste sacks at the resident’s convenience.  Green waste paper sacks (to be purchased at local hardware stores) will replace plastic bags, which are no longer permitted.   Up to thirty compostable lawn/leaf bags will be allowed at each pick-up.
