Please bear with us
Please excuse the temporary inconvenience while we work to build
a permanent recycling facility.
For a map of the new layout, go to the Mariposa County Solid Waste & Recycling Facebook page.
Due to the need to use the landfill space behind the current recycling center for trash disposal and subsequent traffic flow issues, some temporary changes will be in place until a permanent recycling center is constructed. Watch for signs & ask questions if you are unclear how to proceed. Watch for traffic.
1. IF YOU HAVE RECYCLING
Scrap metal, e-waste, appliance and textile recycling will be located in the former recycling center area straight ahead at the entrance. If you have none of the above, you will turn left at the stop sign and proceed past the scale house via the right hand lane without going over the scale or stopping. The recycling area will be to the right next to the white canopy.
2. AFTER YOU DROP OFF YOUR RECYCLABLES
If you have bags or cans of trash, you will be shown where to dump them by a staff member. You will then be given a tag to take to the attendant in the scale house, who will collect the appropriate fee and redeem your recycling receipt if you have one. If you have no trash, you will stop at the scale house to cash in your recycling receipt . If you have no receipt, you can leave directly.
3. IF YOU HAVE RECYCLABLES AND LARGE AMOUNTS OF TRASH OR TRASH UNSUITABLE FOR THE COMPOST FACILITY
If you have large amounts of trash, or trash deemed unsuitable for the compost facility, after disposing of your recyclables, you will be asked to proceed back to the scale house and, when it is safe to do so, make a U-turn back onto the scale to be weighed and to pay the disposal fee. You will then be directed where to dump your load.
4. IF YOU HAVE TRASH AND NO RECYCLABLES
If you have only trash for disposal and no recyclables, you will stop at the scale house as usual to pay your fee and receive directions on where to dispose of your trash.
