Dump Cards

During the 1970’s, San Bernardino County established the Dump Card program. Every year Wrightwood homeowners, and homeowners in many of the unincorporated areas of the County, pay a household disposal fee of $85.14. The household disposal fee is paid through property taxes. Those funds enable the homeowner to dispose of residential trash once per week, up to 500 lbs and to dispose of green waste materials 12 times per year. The fee is not applicable to vacant undeveloped land. Dump cards are mailed annually to verified homeowners before the start of each Fiscal Year, which runs from July 1st to June 30th. New homeowners must notify the WCSD of the change of ownership in order to receive a dump card.

The nearest dump station to Wrightwood is Sheep Creek Transfer Station.

Throwing hazardous waste in the garbage can cause additional hazards to your garbage handler.
