HWMA’s EUREKA RECYCLING CENTER IS PERMANENTLY CLOSING

The Humboldt Waste Management Authority’s Eureka Recycling Center will be permanently closing on August 1, 2022. HWMA staff will be identifying suitable sites for relocation, and it is anticipated that these services will return in early 2023. 

We understand this closure may cause complications and hardships to our customers and only exacerbates the difficulty with disposing of certain hard to recycle items, but we encourage customers to utilize the below alternate disposal locations during this time. We would also like to remind residents that the Transfer Station accepts household recycling in the mixed recycling bins for a reduced fee.  

This closure will allow HWMA and Humboldt County Jurisdictions to work toward SB 1383 compliance by utilizing this vacated space to conduct organics collection and processing activities.  

SB 1383 requires significant action by local jurisdictions, residential and commercial organics generators, haulers, and facilities to reduce organics disposal. It will require the jurisdictions and its member agencies to further enhance organics landfill reduction efforts related to food waste, green waste, wood waste, paper, cardboard, and other organics. The closure of the Eureka Recycling Center is the first step down the road to compliance. 

For questions or concerns please email operations@hwma.net or call 707-268-8680, to print this infor click here.
