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.

Hazardous Waste Facility Observes the Thanksgiving Holiday

Hazardous Waste Facility Observes the 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 27.

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.    

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 2016 Recycling Calendars to all residents bringing in hazardous waste after Christmas. 

Free Oil Filter Exchange Event November 21

Free Oil Filter Exchange Event November 21

The Yolo County Division of Integrated Waste Management and the Cities of Davis, Woodland, Winters and West Sacramento have collaborated with O’Reilly Auto Parts and AutoZone Auto Parts stores, as well as Pisani’s Napa Auto Parts Store in Winters, to educate Yolo County residents on the importance of used oil filter recycling by offering a Used Oil Filter Exchange Event on Saturday, November 21.

This special event is being held to bring awareness around the need to recycle used oil filters.  Do-it-yourself (DIY) oil changers in California purchase more than 20 million oil filters annually.  Unfortunately, less than 10 percent of used oil filters are recycled or even disposed of properly.  This means that an estimated 1.2 million gallons of oil in discarded oil filters goes to landfills each year.  When used oil filters are recycled, the filters and the oil they contain can be made into new products such as construction rebar and re-refined oil.
