Recycling and Hazardous Waste


Nevada County has opened a permanent household hazardous waste facility at the McCourtney Road Transfer Station!

Accepted at the site are used oil (uncontaminated...no water!), oil filters, quart oil containers, other #2 plastic recycling containers used for oil recycling, anti-freeze and antifreeze containers, auto-Batteries (undamaged), lead-acid batteries, aerosol paints, latex and oil based paints (labeled), and paint solvents.

The limitation on how much hazardous waste you can transport at a time is 15 gallons or 125 pounds per load.

Household batteries and fluorescent lights are now classified as household hazardous wastes. Batteries can be dropped off at several locations in Grass Valley. Please review the County’s web site for drop off locations. Fluorescent lights can be dropped off at the McCourtney Road Transfer station.

Green waste (yard waste) pick up is available to all City residents! You can request either a 64 or 96 gallon bin for all your lawn clippings, garden, plant and tree trimmings. Waste Management picks up the containers on the opposite weeks from the recycling pick up. You no longer have to drive to the transfer station.

There is no longer a charge to recycle computer monitors or televisions at the McCourtney Road Transfer Station. Questions call Nevada County's Recycling Hotline at (530) 265-1768. The transfer station and recycling center are open 7 days a week from 8:00 am - 3:30 pm. Please contact Waste Management at 274-3090, or the County Department of Transportation and Sanitation Hotline at 265-1768, to learn about other available programs.

The County will schedule another Tire Amnesty day in late September or early October, so look for the dates. The County held a very successful program last year to help reduce illegal tire dumping.
