Keep Tahoe, Truckee and your home clean

Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal (TTSD) is once again taking appointments for Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection days at the Eastern Regional Landfill (located on Cabin Creek Road off Highway 89 south). Disposing of HHW is free to residents living within the TTSD service area (Truckee, Tahoe City to Kings Beach and the West Shore).

Many households have a variety of items under the sink and in the garage that classify as HHW and need to be properly disposed to prevent threats to public health and the environment. Not sure if what you have classifies? Look for any of these key words to assist you in identifying HHW.
