Caltrans District 10 and Clean California are partnering with Calaveras County to hold a series of FREE RECYCLING events (formally Free Dump Days) for area residents.

This Free Dump Day event will accept tires without rims, appliances, mattresses, and electronic waste (e-waste). The Clean California program is encouraging responsible trash-handling practices and disposing of waste materials safely and properly.

This Free Recycling Event will be held on September 9, 2023 at Copperopolis Community Center, 695 Main St, Copperopolis, CA 9522

Items NOT accepted at this event:
• Household trash, hazardous waste, green/yard waste, bulky Items (old furniture, chairs, tables, etc.), and concrete and demolition materials

Caltrans reminds motorists to properly secure and tarp all cargo loads prior to driving. Transporting unsecured loads is unsafe, illegal, and pollutes California’s roads and waterways. Loads that are not tied down/secured by tarps/nets or enclosed will not be accepted.

Tips for securing your load:
• Completely cover loads with tarps or cargo nets. Debris can escape from gaps.
• Remove loose material and trash before driving.
• Don’t overload; keep materials level with your truck bed.
• Put light items lower, tie large items to the vehicle for traffic safety.
