This Dump Day event is part of Governor Newsom’s $1.1 billion Clean California initiative which makes this event, and other litter prevention and educational events occurring throughout the state, possible. Residents are encouraged to properly dispose of their unwanted, bulky items.

  • What: Free Large Item Dump Day
  • When: Saturday, July 16, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. or until capacity is reached

This Dump Day collection is limited to furniture, appliances, tires (limit 9 per load), and other large, bulky household items. No construction materials, business waste, e-waste, hazardous waste, treated wood waste, or asbestos of any type will be accepted. Clean California Dump Days are open to all residents in the area.

This is part of a series of Dump Day events planned for Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, and Mendocino Counties. Future events include Covelo and Crescent City communities. Please remember to secure your load.

Dump Day events are organized to further the Department’s goal of keeping California highways and waterways litter-free as part of the Clean California Initiative.
