Remember to show your ID

  • Because we don't charge for disposal of your normal household trash and recyclables, residents of neighboring counties frequently try to dispose of their trash at Calaveras County Transfer Stations.
  • Checking IDs is the most effective way to prevent this illegal disposal and to preserve your tax dollars.
  • If you are a part time resident of our county, please have a copy of your tax bill showing the Solid Waste fee ready to show to the attendant.

Open Friday through Tuesday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. They are closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Easter Sunday.
