The mission of the General Services Sanitation Division 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
If you feel your fees are in error you may contact the Sanitation Department at (530) 842-8258 for review or fill out the SOLID WASTE EXEMPTION AND REFUND APPLICATION and return it to this division.
Gate fees are charged for Siskiyou County residents dumping at the Oberlin Road, Black Butte, Tulelake and Happy Camp Transfer/Recycling Stations. Current FEE SCHEDULE
Recycle and Transfer Sites
Note: All transfer stations are closed on major holidays. Days and hours of operation for recycling & transfer stations are subject to change due to budget constraints.
Most transfer stations will accept used oil, electronics, batteries, and florescent lights from residents; this option is not available to businesses. Call your transfer station for more information.
