Put Recyclables in Your Trash OR Bring Recyclables to the WPWMA
The Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA) is a regional agency that provides recycling and waste disposal services for Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville and Placer County.
The Material Recovery Facility (MRF), pronounced ‘murf’, is a key element of the WPWMA's programs to help Placer County meet the state's 50% waste reduction goal. This recycling facility is where all refuse from Western Placer County is sorted to recover recyclable materials.
In Rocklin, trash is sorted at the MRF and everything that can be recycled is sorted and processed automatically. In effect, if you put recyclables in your trash, you will be recycling without having to sort anything, since this is done for you at the MRF.
