Bear Valley Springs Waste Disposal and Recycling

Solid Waste Transfer Station

At the heart of Bear Valley Springs waste management is our Solid Waste Transfer Station, located conveniently next to the BVCSD offices at 28999 South Lower Valley Road. This is where residents can properly dispose of household trash, green waste, and manure.

For household trash, please deposit items directly into the roll-off containers. For green waste and manure, kindly separate these materials and place them in their designated drop-off areas. Here's a simple guide for categorization:

Household Waste:

  • Waxed paper
  • Food wrappings
  • Floor sweepings
  • Paper towel & tissues
  • Broken glass & mirrors
  • Food waste

Note: Green Waste regulations limit disposal to 3 cubic yards per parcel, per day.

Contractors must provide a manifest, signed by the homeowner, identifying the property of origin and contents of the waste.
