Saturday, June 25, 2016
Begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m.
WHO: Properties within the town of Sierraville
WHAT: Curbside pick-up of large wood waste, large bulky items, metals, tires and appliances
COST: No cost to the property owner
Please note the following specifics, provided courtesy of Sierra County:
Waste types may not be mixed. Dimension lumber and construction demo, large branches, large bulky items (furniture, cabinets, dog houses, etc.), tires, (with or without rims), pipe, tin, metals, appliances all must be in separate piles on the curb or immediately within the front yard of residences, and must be clearly marked for pickup. Do not stockpile materials in the traveled way of any street or alley. These items will be loaded by volunteers during the day for transportation to the landfill.
Large bins will be staged at the Sierraville Fire Department and owners may bring waste to that site in lieu of waiting for curbside pick up during the day. Dimension lumber and large branches need to be cut into 4 to 8 foot (maximum) lengths and secured with string/rope when possible before placing at the curb. Other green waste (pine needles, leaves, brush clippings, trimmings, and related waste) will not be picked up at the curb and must be transported and deposited by the owners to the County Road Maintenance Yard on No. Battelle Street/SR 49. Do not mix waste types-please keep separated.
Waste Not Accepted: Hazardous wastes, liquids, E-waste (computers, televisions, etc), fluids, paints, cleaners, or household/wet garbage will not be removed/picked-up. Materials that are not defined as acceptable and/or approved materials will be left on the property.
Self Haul Only: All vehicles, campers, trailers and mobile homes that you wish to dispose must be self hauled by the property owner to the Loyalton Landfill. Fees will be waived for this day but vehicles must be free of any oils and fluids and upon verification of this condition, vehicles will be accepted at the landfill for processing and demolition. Certificates of Title documents are required from vehicle owners. Vehicles, campers, trailers, and mobile-homes will not be picked up nor hauled as part of this clean-up event, however they may be delivered to the Loyalton Landfill on June 25, 2016 as part of this program and County fees will be waived. Hauling is the responsibility of the owner/disposer.
Information: Log onto http://www.sierraville.org or call 530-559-5275 or call Sierra County at 530-289-3201.
While the focus of this event is on three properties, it is available to all in the community.
We are looking for volunteers! If you are able to come out and help your neighbors move items to the curb, please call 530-559-5275 and we can provide details on where assistance is needed.
You can also log onto Sierraville.org and send us a message or reply to this email.
For those volunteers who are not available on Saturday, a special effort to help Mark Alire is happening on Friday at 5 p.m. to load out some items from the old “Sid’s Place” garage. Meet at the site at 5 p.m. on Friday. If you can help, contact Rick Maddalena at 530-906-5081.
Dumping charges at the Loyalton dump/transfer station are mostly free for all county residents on Sat. June 25 except for tires. Hazmat items will be collected on a special day via a cooperative event with Plumas County, at a Plumas County facility.
FYI Sierra County usually has a “tire amnesty day” once a year.
To keep things simple, a decision was made to not include those of you who live in outlying areas for curbside pickup. You can still deliver your items to the bins in Sierraville or take them directly to the transfer station in Loyalton on Saturday.
Thanks for your interest and support in making Sierraville an awesome place to live!
