Materials Recovery Facility

The Eastern Material Recovery Facility (MRF) is one of the County’s key elements in meeting the state’s 50 percent waste reduction goal. All waste is sorted at this facility to recover valuable recyclable materials. The recovered materials are cleaned and sold throughout the world, helping to conserve natural resources.

Each year, Placer County residents residing in the Tahoe area are provided a voucher for free disposal of up to two yards (equivalent to the size of two standard pick-up truck beds) of mixed solid waste. Vouchers are distributed annually to residents who have had at least one year of continuous garbage collection service in the April billing and is valid through the month of June.

Tahoe area residents are serviced by the Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal and the Eastern Regional Materials Recovery Facility
