North County Recycling Center & Sanitary Landfill
serving Stockton, Tracy, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Lathrop, Escalon and San Joaquin County

 

Background

North County Recycling Center and Sanitary Landfill is owned and operated by San Joaquin County, and opened for business on November 1, 1991. Encompassing 320 acres, this site receives an average of 441 tons of waste daily with a permitted quantity of 1,200 tons. During the year 2011, North County received 146,011 tons of waste.

North County was opened as a replacement for the Harney Lane Landfill.  North County was designed to exceed or comply with all state and federal regulations for a lined sanitary landfill.

When opened in 1991, the landfill was the first in the state of California to have a permitted recycling center located on site.  The recycling center allows the County to process and divert from disposal a broad range of materials.  The recycling center averages over 1,400 tons of materials diverted monthly.  This diversion helps extend the expected life of the site and help keep the County in compliance with state mandates for recycling. 

The closure date for this facility is expected in 2046.

San Joaquin County's other facilities include the Lovelace Materials Recovery Facility& Transfer Station, Foothill Sanitary Landfill and the San Joaquin County Household Hazardous Waste Consolidation Facility.
