Every year, new products and building materials are now required to be recycled. To help guide our customers, we have designed this one-stop Materials section to outline what items are accepted and not accepted in rolloff containers in San Luis Obispo County.

If you do not see a particular item on the list, simply contact us online or call 805-543-0473 for clarification.

The Material major sections include:

Organic or Heavy Debris

If you have heavy materials like the items below, it is best to segregate in a separate 10 Yard box due to weight limitations.
