Calaveras County operates seven transfer stations where Calaveras and Alpine County property owners can discard their household trash and mixed recyclables at no cost. Each customer is limited to no more than 2 cubic yards of trash per load (about the amount that will fit in a full-size pickup truck).
We have a mixed recyclable program, where you can recycle all plastics marked 1 through 7, glass, jars, newspaper, aluminum, tin, plastic bottles, paperboard, magazines, office and junk mail in the same container. So, whether you have curbside service or you self haul, you don't have to separate the items.
