Yolo Landfill Resumes Self-Haul Waste on April 18

(Woodland, CA) – Effective Saturday, April 18th, the Yolo County Central Landfill (Landfill) will reopen to all customers. The Landfill, located at 44090 County Road 28H in Woodland, will be open Monday - Saturday from 6:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and will be closed on Sundays. No cash or EBT is being accepted at this time, only credit card and check payments.

In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all customers will be required to wear a facial covering or mask before utilizing Landfill services. These measures are being implemented with the public’s health in mind as well as for the health and safety of County solid waste workers.

All residents with Waste Management, Inc. and Recology Davis curbside services, should first utilize their curbside collection carts for refuse, recycling and yard waste before considering a trip to the Landfill. It is in everyone’s best interest to stay at home, as much as possible, for the duration of the health order. Therefore, hold onto recyclable items that don’t require immediate disposal.

Also in effect April 18th, the Household Hazardous Waste Facility will reopen to residents.  To serve the needs of businesses, hazardous waste appointments will remain available every Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  To encourage social distancing, residents may also contact the Landfill at (530) 666-8813 to schedule a free at-home pick up of hazardous waste.

Since it is not essential for residents to be out picking up trash on the roadside, our Good Neighbor Program is not currently being offered.  Any illegal dumping should be reported to the Roads Division by filling out a Road Maintenance Request Form at: https://www.yolocounty.org/community-services/planning-public-works/public-works-division/road-maintenance-request/road-maintenance-request-form.

The Reuse Paint Shed Program and Big Blue Barn Thrift Store are still closed at this time.  For more information call (530) 666-8852 or visit: www.yolocounty.org/landfill. Learn more about facial coverings, including step-by-step instructions on how to make them at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
