Solid Waste Management

The Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) is a micro agency within the Environmental Health Department  and is certified by the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) as the LEA for Yuba and Sutter Counties to ensure that solid waste landfills and transfer stations are properly operated in regards to vector control, water quality protection, litter prevention, and related concerns; to provide an independent Hearing Panel to hear appeals of the decisions/orders made by the Local Enforcement Agency (LEA); to ensure that inactive sites are properly closed and maintained following closure.

The LEA enforces state laws pertaining to the storage, processing and disposal of solid waste.

The LEA permits and inspects solid waste facilities to ensure compliance with state minimum standards, inspects all refuse collection vehicles operating in the two Counties and responds to complaints about illegal dumping and public nuisances caused by solid waste facilities.

These Solid Waste Facilities include:

  • Active and Closed Landfills
