Debris Box must be safe to haul. Customers are responsible for damaged and/or overloaded debris boxes.

Debris boxes have time limits of five days. Debris boxes are subject to removal five days after delivery unless otherwise scheduled by the customer. Our drivers may arrive as early as 6:00 am to remove the debris box or as late as 6:00 pm for delivery. All deliveries must be prepaid. NO DIRT OR ROCKS IN BINS. Other heavy items of special concern: sheetrock, composition, sod, bricks, asphalt. DUMPSTERS MUST NOT BE OVERLOADED: DEBRIS IN ALL BOXES MUST BE LEVEL WITH THE RIM OF THE BOX (water-level full only). No items can be protruding from the sides of the box. Heavy materials should be evenly distributed in the bottom of the box.


HAZARDOUS: and/or toxic materials, biohazardous wastes, explosives, or gasoline tanks are prohibited in all debris boxes. By law, we cannot accept autos or any hazardous wastes: i.e. paint, anti-freeze, batteries, insecticides, toxins, medical waste, etc. We are not a permitted hazardous waste hauler. We do offer a separate medical waste removal program.

APPLIANCES: All large appliances should be placed in an accessible location on top of the load. Refrigerators, freezers, and/or air conditioners will be assessed an additional freon removal charge per item; charges based on current MRF rates for freon removal.

QUESTIONABLE ITEMS: Limit of four tires (regular auto) per dumpster. Other questionable items (tanks, asbestos, engines, etc) must be removed by Placer County Health Department. Bins containing any of the above will be returned full and charged for trip unless item has been approved or compensation has been made.

PROPER HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL: Automobile oil and batteries are accepted at the landfill only. Other hazardous wastes may be disposed at the Hazardous waste facility at the landfill. Please call (530) 583-7800 for schedule as the facility is not always open.


OVERWEIGHT CHARGES: Current MRF tonnage rate, or portion thereof exceeding the weight limit. Customers who load dumpsters w/ mixed solid wastes are required to pay landfill tipping fee for portions of weight which exceed the specified limit. Net weight limit of 8,000 lbs. for 20 Yard debris box (mixed solid wastes). Net weight limit of 10,000 lbs for 30 Yard debris box (mixed solid wastes). Customers who load debris boxes with inert wastes only are not subject to additional weight charges.

LEGALLY HAULABLE: All debris boxes must be legally haulable according to the U.S. Department of Transportation rules and regulations. In the interest of public safety, the USDOT imposes restrictions on weight and containment of transported loads. Debris Boxes exceeding the legal weight limits as allowed by the DOT will not be removed until legally haulable. The purpose of the debris box weight limits is to make rates consistent with disposal costs at Placer County Eastern Regional Landfill (Transfer Station/Material Recovery Facility), which are based on the ton rather than the yard. Change is also consistent with State mandates, encouraging source-separation of recyclable materials.


6 YARD DEBRIS BOX: Avoid overloading with heavy items which may render dumpster too heavy to remove (i.e. sheetrock, composition roofing, etc).

20/30 YARD DEBRIS BOX: See above description of weight limits.

ROCK BOXES: Debris Boxes must contain inert wastes only (No mixed solid wastes). When loaded water-level full, rock box weight will be approximately 12 tons, the approximate legal limit for our Rock Boxes. Contaminated soil is prohibited unless approved in advance by Placer County Health Department. Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal Company is not responsible for damage to surface on which the debris box is placed or over which the truck must travel. Placement locations must be level and clearly removed from public easements with no immediate overhead wires. Trucks must have a height clearance of 18′ and a width clearance of 12′. TTSD reserves the right to refuse delivery if, in its judgment, the placement location is unsuitable. Customers who wisht to protect surfaces must do so in advance by own accord.
