Monthly Bulky Waste Pick Up
Waste Management offers residents one bulky item curbside pick-up at no additional charge per calendar year. The pile may be up to 5 cubic yards of large items. Additional bulky pick-ups may be requested at a rate of $15.00 per cubic yard. The curbside bulky item collection takes place on the first non-recycle Friday of each month. To participate, please call at least one week prior to the bulky item collection day.
Electronic Waste Pick-up
Electronic Waste (E-Waste) is the term used to describe discarded electronic equipment. Television, microwaves, computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, VCR’s, fax machines, electronic games and cell phones fall in this category. These products contain Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) which are made of lead and cannot be disposed of in your trash or recycling carts.
E-Waste is acceptable for bulky item pick-up (see rules above).
E-Waste is accepted daily free of charge at the Yolo County Landfill for Yolo County residents. Please visit yolocounty.org for more information. E-Waste is also accepted at the Annual Bulky Waste Event held every June.
Household Hazardous Waste
Household hazardous waste (HHW) is any product labeled: toxic, poison, corrosive, flammable, combustible or irritant. HHW items include items such as paint, batteries, oil, and pesticides. These products, if mishandled, can be dangerous to your health and the environment, and therefore should be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. Also, these materials should never be discarded in a sink, storm drain or in your regular trash.
