Self-Haul Limited at Yolo County Central Landfill


(Woodland, CA) – In response to the current Covid-19 Public Health Emergency, effective March 27th, 2020, the Yolo County Central Landfill, located at 44090 County Road 28H in Woodland, will not accept self-haul loads and will only accept business and landfill account customers. For these customers, the landfill will remain open Monday – Saturday from           6:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  and will be closed on Sundays. Similarly, the Reuse Paint Shed Program will not operate until further notice. County staff will be screening vehicles.  These measures are being implemented with the best interest of public health in mind as well as for the health and safety of County solid waste workers.


The County Health Officer advises that residential customers making trips to the landfill may be in violation of the Shelter in Place order.  Residents should utilize their curbside collection carts for refuse, recycling and yard waste.  Disposal needs must wait until the Shelter in Place order is lifted. For questions regarding self-haul, customers should call (530) 666-8727.


In addition, effective March 29, the Household Hazardous Waste Facility will be closed to residents.  To serve the needs of businesses, hazardous waste appointments will remain available every Friday between the hours of 9am and 2pm.  To ensure the safety of the senior and disabled population, residents aged 65 or older or those with a disability may also contact the Landfill at (530) 666-8813 to schedule a free at home pick up of hazardous waste. All other landfill programs remain in place.
