General Services - Sanitation Division

Effective September 1, 2016 the Tulelake Transfer Station's
Hours of Operation will be 11:00 am to 3:00 pm

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

Property-related fees:

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:

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
