The mission of the Siskiyou County Sanitation Department is to
provide an integrated, cost effective and environmentally sound solid
waste disposal system to all county residents, homeowners and commercial
enterprises. This will be accomplished through coordinated
administrative, operational and educational projects in waste reduction,
reuse, recycling and disposal.
Funding for the program comes from two sources — property related fees and gate fees. Revenue from these two sources is deposited in a Sanitation Enterprise fund and can only be used for the Sanitation program.
Property-related fees: If you feel your fees are in error you may contact the Sanitation Department at (530) 842-8250 for review or fill out the SOLID WASTE EXEMPTION AND REFUND APPLICATION and return it to this department.
Gate fees: Gate fees are charged for Siskiyou County residents dumping at the Oberlin Road, Black Butte, Tulelake and Happy Camp Transfer/Recycling Stations. The schedule of fees can be found here:
