IMPORTANT NOTE: It is important to remember the PURPOSE of California‘s Executive Order N-33-20, which requires all Californian’s to “shelter-in-place” by remaining at home or at their place of residence, except as necessary to obtain food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary healthcare, or go to an essential job. The purpose of the order is to limit and help prevent the transmission of the novel coronavirus (also referred to as COVID-19).

With this in mind, Nevada County sent out Code Red state mandate announcement to “shelter-in-place” on March 24th. Since then we have seen a high influx of individuals coming into the McCourtney Road Transfer Station, averaging upwards of 500 vehicles per day. With all good intentions, residents are using this time to catch up on projects. While it is a great use of time, Waste Management and Nevada County want to remind the community that disposing of their trash created by project work is not considered essential service.

The increase of traffic at the transfer station puts you, as well as the Waste Management staff at risk. We want to ask those individuals who have curbside trash pick-up to use their cans to dispose of their garbage versus traveling to the transfer station.

Waste Management would like to prioritize the drop-off services as only for those who are not signed up for curb-side pick-up and must self-haul their household waste. If individuals have recyclables or non-organic waste, we recommend that they plan a trip to the dump for when the shelter-in-place mandate is lifted.”

STAY HOME. SAVE LIVES #TakeCareOfNevadaCounty
