Recycling and Donation Directory

Search:    

Davis prides itself on its recycling program, but sometimes things end up in the garbage that could be better utilized in the community. Here's a directory, organized by item, designed to give people alternatives to just tossing stuff in the garbage. If you are looking for a way to dispose of a particular item that is not on the list, write it in the comments and someone will look for a solution.

In general, usable goods can often be given away on The Freecycle Network or the Sacramento area Craigslist. You can list a free classified ad in the Davis Enterprise for any items you wish to give away. Many household items are accepted at the SPCA Thrift Store, as well as via donation trucks from different organizations that tend to come around relatively frequently to make donations. Neighbors and friends are also good sources to "donate" to. Additionally, at the end of the UCD school year, the university holds a Resource Recovery Drive in order to divert usable goods from landfills. The City of Davis also has an online [WWW]Recyclopedia with over 150 items and ways to reuse and recycle them locally.

Also note that donations made to government-authenticated, non-profit organizations are tax deductible, as long as you request a receipt with a list of items donated and their approximate value.

The Yolo County Central Landfill holds free household hazardous waste drop off days twice a month. [WWW]Click here for schedule of drop-off days.
