Reuse, recycle, rethink and waste not! That’s the message of the Diamond Springs-based El Dorado Disposal – a Waste Connections Company that offers integrated solid waste services to residents in Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills, Placerville and unincorporated El Dorado County. This service company, which collects, transfers, disposes and recycles environmentally unsafe toxins from your home’s unruly clutter, also helps rid the world of waste that has compounded the very immediate problem of climate change. El Dorado Disposal operates two separate recycling programs: the first is reserved for green waste; materials accepted for collection are grass clippings, brush, pine needles and cones; leaves, pruning and flowers, wood and branches. Residential materials accepted for the household recycling program include newspapers and various other paper materials; corrugated cardboard, paperboard and paper egg cartons; steel, tin and bi-metal cans; aluminum cans and clean foils, bottles and household cleaning products. (For a complete list of unacceptable items, refer to the Web site.) El Dorado Disposal also operates a large Material Recovery Facility, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. Beyond collecting residential waste from actual homes, El Dorado Disposal also operates three recycling centers in Placerville, El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park. E-waste is accepted at all three locations, all of which offer a can and bottle buy back service, and a drop-off box for household batteries. Removing solid waste and hazardous materials significantly impacts the health of the planet, and also upholds and protects public health standards. That is why El Dorado Disposal works with the county’s Solid Waste and Hazardous Materials Department, which is dedicated to safe waste removal accomplished through “enforcement activities, incident response, public education, litter collection and oversight,” according to the organization. El Dorado Disposal also holds various Spring Cleanup events each year. For more detailed information, contact El Dorado Disposal Customer Service at 530-626-4141 or 916-985-1162, or visit
