How does Placer Recycle?

Placer County Residents and visitors are already recycling! Using one combined trash and recycling bin and our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), we sort out all possible recyclable material for you. But not everything can go in. You have the power to keep Placer beautiful for generations to come by making sure only trash and recyclables go in the bin. Please use our convenient pickup and drop off resources for all other types of waste.


The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), affectionately known as the The Murf around here, assists Western Placer County with achieving state mandated waste diversion goals. Learn more by taking a virtual tour of the MRF today.
