Recycling Locations

Riverside County Landfills

Appliances are accepted at all Riverside County landfills with the following restrictions:

  • Up to four (4) appliances will be accepted per day from each residential customer.
  • Appliances are not accepted from commercial/business loads.  A business is defined as organizations including corporations, schools, churches, non-profits and other commercial entities. This restriction also applies to residential cleanup crews that are removing residentially generated waste from private residences.
  • The appliances must be placed by the customer in designated areas as directed by site personnel.  Customers are directed to place these items in the designated staging area in a manner that prevents spills of oil and fuels. Residents shall remove all food content from appliances prior to arrival.  
  • Appliances may not be delivered comingled with other solid waste.  Waste loads containing appliances mixed with solid waste will be refused.  Customers who repeatedly contaminate their waste loads with commingled appliances may be banned from the site.
