Recology Ostrom Road, located in Yuba County, CA currently provides solid waste disposal services to both municipal and commercial customers in the northern Sacramento Valley including Yuba, Sutter, Butte, Nevada, and Colusa Counties. We began operation in 1995 as the first landfill facility in California to receive approval to operate under the new Subtitle D regulations requiring liner systems, leachate collection and recovery systems, water quality monitoring systems, and other environmental protection measures. The site covers 261 acres, 225 of which are permitted as a Class II Landfill.

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) – Garbage and non-hazardous refuse. This includes mixed waste materials which are NOT recyclable that are generated by residential, commercial, and institutional customers to be disposed of in
the landfill.
  • Ash
    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.
  • 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.
  • Waste Water Treatment Sludge & Water Treatment Sludge
  • Other Designated Wastes as Approved by Specified Acceptance Criteria

* 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 a mixed material.
  • 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.

Unacceptable materials include but are not limited to liquid waste, paint, household hazardous waste (HHW), electronic waste, batteries, fluorescent tubes and bulbs, and treated wood waste.

NEW! Starting January 1, 2021, Recology will no longer accept treated wood waste for disposal.

Changes in State law have banned the disposal of treated wood in regular solid waste landfills and will impose significant new requirements on anyone who uses, stores, transports, and disposes of treated wood. If treated wood enters Recology facilities after December 31, 2020, we will reject it and require that you take it away. There will be no exceptions.

Treated wood is any wood that has been treated with a chemical preservative to protect the wood against attacks from insects, microorganisms, or fungi. It is typically used in outdoor applications such as fences, decks, stairways, etc.

For questions about responsible disposal of treated wood waste, contact your local Environmental Health Department or the California Department of Toxic Substances Control.  Visit or email
