Free Tree Recycling and Holiday Closures

(Woodland, CA) – There are many opportunities to safely dispose of, or recycle, waste almost every day of the year at the Yolo County Central Landfill, located at 44090 County Road 28H in Woodland, and the Esparto Convenience Center, located at 27075 County Road 19A in Esparto.

The Landfill regularly holds weekly collection of household hazardous waste on Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., except on holidays. The Esparto Convenience Center transfer station provides free recycling of glass, plastics, mixed paper and metals as well as used oil, filters, cardboard and e-waste on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., except on holidays.

Both facilities will be hosting free recycling of residential holiday trees from December 26 through January 15. Tree-cycling turns holiday trees into a valuable, renewable and recyclable resource as trees are biodegradable and will eventually decompose to provide essential organic matter. Residents should ensure that trees are free of all ornaments, flocking, tinsel, garland and lights.  Please note that this program is only for Yolo County residents and there is a limit of two trees per customer for free recycling.

Both the Landfill and the Esparto station will be closed on Wednesday, December 25 for Christmas and Wednesday, January 1 for New Year’s Day. The Esparto station will be open on Saturday, December 28 and Saturday, January 4th from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will resume their full regular schedule on Wednesday, January 8.

Household hazardous waste events and holiday recycling programs are sponsored by the Yolo County Department of Community Services, Division of Integrated Waste Management.  For more information on proper disposal of household waste, call (530) 666-8856 or visit: www.yolocounty.org/landfill.
