2 MSW is municipal solid waste consisting of non-hazardous residential or household refuse, commercial waste such as construction and demolition wastes.
3 Green Waste is considered tree and lawn clippings, leaves and brush.
4 Appliances (microwaves, refrigerators, etc.) are accepted for recycling purposes only. Since many of these appliances contain materials that cannot be placed in the landfill, these items are put in the hazardous waste storage area and are taken off-site by a licensed contractor for recycling or disposal. These are considered bulky items and are subject to a hard-to-handle charge.
5 Tarps Are Required: Uncovered loads are subject to a Non-Containment Fee of $150.00 per load/unit. State CA Vehicles (SEC 23115) requires all vehicles that haul refuse or recyclables to be covered to prevent spillage from vehicles. This code will be strictly enforced.
