Rural Libraries Receiving Increased Broadband Service

Rural Libraries Receiving Increased Broadband Service

This past November, Yolo County’s library branches in Esparto, Knights Landing and Yolo increased broadband service to one gigabyte, thus increasing the Internet speed at these locations.

 

The Yolo County Library obtained funds for these improvements through the State Library’s partnership with the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).  CENIC, along with Governor Brown and the legislature’s “Lighting Up Libraries” initiative, has allowed for the deployment of improved, lower cost broadband services to public libraries across the state, now including rural libraries within Yolo County.

 

By supporting the critical and long-term connectivity needs of Yolo County’s residents, users will be able to more easily access the Internet to job search, find local government or healthcare resources and engage in online education. 

 

Christmas Tree Recycling Information

Christmas Tree Recycling Information

The presents are unwrapped, the guests are gone, now what to do with that tree? In West Sacramento, residents can recycle Christmas trees in their yard waste carts. Trees must be cut into sections no more than three feet long and two inches in diameter. If your tree exceeds the capacity of your cart, you may bundle excess branches and place them next to your yard waste cart for pick up on your regular service day. Please remove all tinsel, lights, ornaments, flocking and stands prior to disposal.

You may also recycle your tree at the Yolo County Central Landfill located at 44090 County Rd 28H.  Call (530) 666-8729 for FREE drop off information... Read More

Free Tree Recycling at Landfill & Holiday Closures

Free Tree Recycling at Landfill & Holiday Closures

Free recycling of holiday trees (treecycling) is being offered to Yolo County residents at the Yolo County Central Landfill and the Esparto Recycling & Transfer Station from December 26 through January 15. 

Trees are biodegradable and will eventually decompose to provide essential organic matter.  Treecycling turns holiday trees into valuable renewable and recyclable resources.  Trees to be recycled should be free of all ornaments, flocking, tinsel, garland and lights.  There is a limit of two trees per resident for free recycling. 

While recycling your tree, please remember that old electronics, such as computers, TVs and monitors, and paper, plastics, cans and bottles can also be recycled every day of operation at the Yolo County Central Landfill and the Esparto Recycling & Transfer Station.
