Altamont Landfill

The landfill is operating and open during regular hours

As of March 23, 2019, the landfill will no longer be able to accept waste for disposal from outside the (9) Bay Area Counties (Alameda, Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Contra Costa, San Mateo, San Francisco, and Santa Clara) due to a permit condition that goes into effect when we open a new section of the landfill on the 23rd. The site is able to accept unlimited tons for disposal from Alameda and San Francisco Counties and up to 25,000 tons annually of sludges, inert waste, and special waste from the other (7) Bay Area Counties. There are no specific tonnage or origin limits on non-disposal tonnage such as ADC, reuse, recycle, or transfer materials.
