Green Waste Disposal

El Dorado County residents are encouraged to join in the community’s preparation for Fire Safety through Defensible Space measures. Residents of El Dorado County may self-haul green waste to Eastern Regional Landfill (ERL) utilizing special Green Waste Coupons provided within the Green Waste Coupon Program. Each coupon allows residents to drop off up to 3 yards of yard-waste material. If material is transported in bags, the bags must be emptied on-site by the hauler. To facilitate unloading, position a tarp on the bottom of the truck bed or trailer before loading the material.  Don’t forget to cover the load for safe hauling. In order to take advantage of the free drop-off, residents are required to bring proof of residency. ERL is located on Cabin Creek Road, off HWY 89, three miles south of the "Mouse Hole Tunnel." Coupon drop-off is available May 1 – October 31, Monday – Saturday, 8am – 4pm.
