Unacceptable Items & Loads
The following items will not be accepted:
- Household chemicals or liquids of any kind
- Oil waste or automotive fluids
- Heavy equipment or tractor tires
- Treated wood – railroad ties, pressure-treated lumber, etc.
- Commercial loads
Also, trucks over 1 ton and trailers over 8 feet will not be accepted, no exceptions.
In order to offset the cost of the annual cleanup events, there will be a small charge for most items.
Carloads of discards will be charged $1.00, while pick-ups, vans, and station wagons will be $2.00. Smaller single-axle trailers less than 8 feet will be charged $3.00, while 8-foot trailers and 1-ton trucks will be charged $4.00. (Trucks over 1 ton and trailers over 8 feet will not be accepted, no exceptions.)
The Merced County Solid Waste Division has obtained a grant from the State of California for the disposal of passenger tires. This allows us to offer FREE disposal of up to four (4) passenger tires per load. Additional passenger tires beyond the limit will cost the participant $1.00 each. The grant does not cover commercial loads or tractor tires and we will not accept these at the Community Clean-up Events. However, we will accept truck tires, from 16.5 to 20 inches in size, at a cost of $2.00 each.
