We are currently experiencing staff shortages that may cause sporadic closure of remote sites and the metal/brush/inert area at the Weaverville transfer station.

OVERSIZED AND BULKY ITEMS: In an effort to limit damages to equipment and facilities, Solid Waste attendants at all sites will be enforcing length restrictions which limit construction debris, piping, wire, irrigation lines and similar materials to 4-foot lengths.
Any bulky or oversized materials (tarps, furniture, etc.) must either be cut in 3 to 4-foot lengths or be reduced to the most minimum volume possible.
Solid Waste reserves the right to reject any load that may damage containers, trucks, heavy equipment or facilities; and to determine fees by weight or volume as the attendant deems appropriate for the nature of the load at the Weaverville Transfer Station.

TREATED WOOD WASTE (TWW): According to state regulation, treated wood waste must be handled as a separate waste stream due to the chemical preservatives used to protect the wood from insects and decay. We are currently working to develop a handling system for disposal of this material, but currently none of the transfer sites can accept it. For questions regarding disposal of treated wood waste, contact the Department of Toxic Substances Control at 
TWW is any wood treated with chemical preservatives to protect from insects and decay.
This includes (but is not limited to) items such as:

  • Fence posts, Guardrails and Pilings,
  • Sill plates, Decking and Railroad ties,
  • Landscape timbers, Patio wood/posts

Please call 530-623-1326 x 199 for a recorded message to check status of the transfer sites.
