Drop-off Services at Eastern Regional Landfill

Truckee residents who have the means to self-haul yard waste material to the Eastern Regional Landfill (ERL) are allowed to drop off up to six yards of yard waste for free between May 1 and October 31, 2019. Bags are not required. Residents need to unload their material themselves once at ERL. In order to take advantage of the free drop-off, Truckee residents are required to bring proof of residency (something with a Truckee address ­ – utility bill, drivers license, etc.). ERL is located just three miles past the mouse hole tunnel on Highway 89 and up Cabin Creek Road.
