Recology Hay Road provides solid waste disposal services to both municipal and commercial customers in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sacramento Valley. The site primarily serves San Francisco as well as Solano County, specifically the cities of Vacaville and Dixon. In 1964, Recology Hay Road began operation and built its first liner system in 1992. The site is comprised of 640 acres, 256 of which are permitted as a Class II landfill.
Residual material from a fire which contains non-hazardous levels of metals and minerals.
- Contaminated Soil
Soil (with less than 5% debris) that has contamination with constituents below state and federal hazardous limits. RHR requires any soil suspected of contamination to be tested based on generator knowledge and site history.
- Hazardous Asbestos*
Asbestos-containing materials are hazardous if they contain 1% or more friable asbestos. Friable asbestos-containing material can be easily crumbled or reduced to powder, becoming an airborne hazard.
- Non-Hazardous Asbestos*
Asbestos-containing materials are non-hazardous if they contain less than 1% friable asbestos. These materials are also non-hazardous if they are non-friable, meaning they cannot be easily crumbled or reduced to powder.
- Treated Wood Waste (TWW)
Recology Hay Road has received a variance from the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to accept and dispose of treated wood waste. With this variance, the landfill can accept TWW from customers who provide a TWW transporter and/or generator variance. For one-time customers without a variance, TWW may be accepted if the transporter provides the TWW generator’s name, address, phone number, and the transporter’s name, address, phone number, and vehicle license plate number. All TWW customers will be required to either have a non-hazardous manifest or complete a TWW Customer Form found here (Spanish translated version found here). For more information or to apply for a TWW variance click here. For more information about TWW click here.
* Hazardous and non-hazardous asbestos-containing materials must be properly bagged, labeled, manifested, and scheduled prior to disposal.
- Concrete (Clean)
Clean concrete that is dry and does not contain other demolition materials (i.e., rebar, wood, inerts). Clean concrete is recycled onsite.
- Construction and Demolition Debris (C&D)
Includes, but is not limited to concrete, wood, and drywall, usually found as mixed material.
- Metal, Appliances, and White Goods
Metal and appliances (i.e., washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves) containing metal are recycled. White goods containing Freon, oils, electrical circuits, compressor oils, and mercury switches are accepted for an additional appliance surcharge.
- Soil (Clean)
Clean soil and dirt are accepted when the required Clean Soil Certification form is completed by the generator. This signed form must be submitted verifying that the soil is clean and free from contaminants.
Whole car and truck tires, with rims removed, are recycled for an additional fee.
- Used Motor Oil
Non-commercial used vehicle motor oil is collected at the Used Oil Collection Center onsite.
- Yard Trimmings and Food Scraps
Organic materials are accepted and converted into earth-friendly, nutrient-rich soil amendments at Jepson Prairie Organics.
Unpainted lumber, pallets, and scrap wood are all recycled onsite. If the wood is mixed with non-wood materials, it is considered MSW and will be directed to the landfill.
Unacceptable materials include but are not limited to liquid waste, paint, household hazardous waste (HHW), electronic waste, batteries, fluorescent tubes, and bulbs. HHW material may be dropped off at 855½ Davis Street in Vacaville. Open every Saturday from 9 AM – 3 PM (excluding holidays). Additional HHW information can be found at Vacaville Recycling.
