Good Neighbor Program
Illegal dumping is an eyesore. Roadside furniture, appliances and tires, to name a few, do nothing to enhance a neighborhood. The County of Yolo has a program that can help. Residents may take illegally dumped items found along the roadside to the landfill - Free of Charge. In addition, the resident will be given a coupon good for disposal of their own waste. Just for being a Good Neighbor! The County implemented this program to reduce the amount of money the Roads Division spends cleaning up illegal dumping. Residents are requested not to pick up hazardous waste and will be asked to complete a form that includes describing the location where the material was collected.
If you would like more information about this program, contact the Yolo County Central Landfill at 530-666-8729 or visit their website.
