The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), affectionately known as the The Murf around here, assists Western Placer County with achieving state mandated waste diversion goals. The MRF serves multiple jurisdictions, helping us to collaboratively achieve a much greater economy of scale for material diversion and provide consistency for residents in waste diversion and recycling programs.
The MRF was designed and is operated to:
1) recover recyclable materials from mixed waste
2) process green and wood wastes (or yard waste) for composting or biomass
3) receive and process source-separated recyclables
4) provide for receipt and recycling or disposal of household hazardous waste.
The MRF is owned and operated by the Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA).
