Yuba Sutter Local Enforcement Agency (LEA)

Solid Waste and Waste Tire Program




The Yuba County Environmental Health Department serves Yuba and Sutter Counties as the Local Enforcement Agency.  Many types of Solid Waste facilities are reviewed, permitted and regulated under this program for compliance with State and Local regulations.  Solid waste complaints are also investigated as a part of this program.


The Yuba Sutter LEA permits and routinely inspects the following solid waste facilities:

Bare LinerConstruction layer




Ostrom Road Landfill - Wheatland


Feather River Organics (YSDI Composting) - Marysville

Ponderosa Transfer Station - Brownsville

Yuba Sutter Disposal, Inc. Landfill - Marysville (closed)

Yuba Sutter Disposal Area Landfill - Marysville

Beale Air Force Base Landfills N0. 2 and No. 3 - Beale AFB (closed)

Ponderosa Landfill - Brownsville (closed)

Yuba Sutter Disposal, Inc., Integrated Waste Recovery Facility - Marysville

We also annually inspect old closed disposal sites.


The following solid waste operations are also permitted and routinely inspected:


     Green Solutions - Organic Materials                                  Agricultural by-products - fruit pits


SunGro Forest Products - Organic Materials - Marysville

  Organic Materials - Yuba City


Most types of commercial composting - Agricultural, green material, non-green material and biosolids (sewage sludge),

as well as  chipping and grinding operations, contaminated soil transfer/processing operations, sealed container operations, non-hazardous ash transfer and processing operations, agricultural disposal sites, construction and demolition debris operations and inert debris operations are permitted and inspected.



Routinely inspections are done on solid waste vehicles that transport garbage, rubbish, agricultural by products and recyclables (if commingled with solid waste).



We investigate and require the clean up of illegal dumping of solid waste in the public right of ways and on private property.  This crime is difficult to deter.  Please cal the appropriate law enforcement agency if you see this crime taking place and can get a license plate number, vehicle description and driver description.

We do not have the authority to enforce solid waste regulations at Mobile Home Parks, this is the jurisdiction of the State Department of Housing and community Development.



Currently there are no permitted Waste Tire Facilities located in Yuba or Sutter County but there are over a hundred waste tire generators and end use facilities.  A business is considered a Waste Tire Generator if 10 or more waste tires are generated at the location.  These business locations are inspected once per year and must demonstrate compliance with the state waste tire regulations.
