Oroville, CA – On March 1, 2015, the unincorporated area transitioned from multiple waste and recycling haulers throughout the County to three distinct collection areas with one hauler per area. Collection in the cities and the town is unchanged.
County staff have received many calls from residents in the last month inquiring about the new collection areas. The most common questions asked by residents are listed below.
Who is my new hauler?
Residents who currently use a different hauling company than the one designated for their area will get a new hauler. Residents can find their hauler by searching the interactive map online at RecycleButte.net. Each hauling company mailed a notice to residents to inform them of the change.
Will my collection day and time change?
Residents may experience a change in their collection day. Depending on the collection day and routes, residents may experience collection occurring at a different time of day. It is best to have all cans out by 5:30 a.m. Residents should contact their hauler with questions about their collection day.
Residents who have questions about their collection day, rate, or services should contact their hauling company directly.
