Waste Management Division
The Butte County Department of Public Works’ Waste Management Division seeks to pro-actively manage County waste disposal facilities, educate, provide reasonably priced and environmentally acceptable methods for solid and hazardous waste reduction and disposal for County residents and businesses, be vigilant in enforcing illegal dumping codes, and pursue renewable/sustainable energy projects at the County’s Neal Road Recycling and Waste Facility.
Waste Management Division

The Solid Waste Division is responsible for operating the Neal Road Recycling and Waste Facility, regulating the local waste collectors, providing safe disposal opportunities for household hazardous waste and universal waste, enforcement of illegal dumping, administering grant programs, coordinating solid waste and recycling education programs, and implementing programs that divert waste from landfills.
