Recycle Butte
Recycling is more than extending the life of our landfill.  It is about making the best use of the resources we have available and preserving those resources for future generations.  It is about conserving water, energy, land and materials.  It is about creating a sustainable community that values what we have and what future generations deserve to have.  When you bury something in the landfill, it's like burying the energy and water it took to create that product.

What is a Recycling Zone?

There are six recycling zones throughout the unincorporated area of Butte County. Recycling zones include the three-cart service (trash, recycling, yard waste). Search the map to see if your property is in a recycling zone. Recycling Zones were created based on the density of residential dwellings (homes per mile) that is similar to incorporated cities. Higher density equates to greater collection efficiency allowing for additional collection programs like recycling and yard waste collection to be provided at a low cost.

Rates listed are monthly.

Your residential rate for properties outside a recycling zone is determined based on your location in one of four rate quadrants. Search the map to see in which rate quadrant your property is located. 

Keeping rates competitive for residents is a priority for Butte County. The rates are part of the haulers contracts and cannot be changed outside the terms of the contract. Contact your hauler about commercial services and rates.
