Who We Are

Welcome to Sacramento County's Department of Waste Management and Recycling website. Our services include collection of materials from the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County, as well as the North Area Recovery Station and Kiefer Landfill. Review our site to see how our award-winning services, facilities, and programs reflect a high-level commitment to public service.

Our Commitment

Our County’s commitment to regional sustainability is reflected in our initiatives and partnerships, including:

  • Recycling of 74% of our waste that would have otherwise been landfilled
  • Construction of a CNG fueling station to service our south county collections area
  • Complete conversion of our collection fleet trucks to natural gas, and utilization of sheep for lawncare management; both initiatives resulted in winning a Breathe 2015 Sacramento County Award
  • Production of electricity from Kiefer Landfill gas
