Recology Auburn Placer has received a variance by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to handle and transport treated wood waste (TWW). With this variance, our transfer station can accept TWW from customers who provide a TWW transporter variance and/or generator variance.
For 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, driver’s license number and vehicle license plate number when dropping off the material.
Please note: Treated wood waste must be separated from construction and demolition debris loads (ie: place TWW on top of load).
To apply for a TWW variance, visit: https://dtsc.ca.gov/treated-wood-waste-variances/

All TWW handled by our facility will be transported to a TWW facility that has been issued a TWW variance from DTSC.
