Waste & Recycling
Door to door garbage pick-up is available in Irvine and Desert Blume. Otherwise, the County's eight solid-waste transfer sites accept household waste. General household garbage is to be placed into the garbage bins. These bins are hauled to the Redcliff Cypress Regional Landfill where the material is covered daily.
Hours that the various transfer sites are open have been determined by local demand and vary. However, most are open to the public about 16 hours each week.
Burning at the transfer sites is not permitted. Tree branches must be cut into lengths that will fit into the garbage bins.
Certain items are to be separated and placed in the designated area. These include appliances (with doors & refrigerant removed), automobile bodies, batteries, oil and oil filters, paint cans containing paint, electronics, and tires.
Recyclable household items (newsprint, paper, plastics, metals) may be collected separately at some locations.
Regional Landfill Passcards
When the local waste transfer site is closed, or for larger loads, residents can haul their refuse to the Redcliff Cypress Regional Landfill. Residents can request a Landfill Pass Card from the County office, which allows them to haul into the landfill, without paying scale charges, to a maximum of $170 per year.
