The Yolo County Central Landfill will hold two drop-off days for household hazardous waste items this week for Yolo County residents. The landfill will be open for drop-off on Oct. 17 and 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The landfill will accept the following items: batteries, fluorescent bulbs or tubes, used motor oil and filters, cleaning supplies, lighter fluid, antifreeze, aerosols, garden pesticides and herbicides, latex or oil based paints, solvents, poisons, electrical switches and relays, pilot light sensors and mercury thermostats. Small electronics like televisions and monitors are also accepted for recycling at no cost, though there is a handling fee for recycling appliances.

County presents proposed General Plan
Yolo County is currently working on updating its General Plan, the policy document that guides development in the county’s undeveloped areas. The General Plan has only been comprehensively updated two other times in the county’s history.
The draft General Plan was released on Sept. 10 and is available for viewing online at yolocountygeneralplan.org. It can also be viewed at county library branches and the county offices in Woodland.
