Cardboard and Oversized

Customers may take items of large size or quantity, such as cardboard, to local community recycling containers or the Material Recovery Facility. Commercial customers who regularly generate large quantities of cardboard may remove the material from their site via our commercial cardboard recycling program. Weekly commercial cardboard dumpster service is available. Cardboard must be clean and free of contaminants to qualify for the program.

Free Residential cardboard drop-off locations: Truckee Town Hall, Northstar (Village Parking Lot), Sheriff Station (Donner Pass Rd) and Eastern Regional Landfill (900 Cabin Creek Rd)

Have a mattress? Please visit bye-bye-mattress for drop-off information in your area.

In addition to recycling, we encourage everyone to “reduce and reuse.” One person’s trash is another’s treasure. Before you discard that sofa, try to find a home for it through one of the local charitable groups or online marketplaces interested in those items.

Residential customers may schedule certain large items to be picked up curbside for a fee (200lbs or less) with advanced request by calling 530-583-7800.  Estimated prepayment will be collected upon order, actual charges will be reflected on the next quarterly billing statement.
