Reliable Community Resource

The WPWMA knows how important connecting with our community is. Which is why we enjoy having a presence at community events, providing facility tours, and fun opportunities for K-12 education. 

Look for the Placer Recycles booth and talk trash with us at local community events! To invite the WPWMA or Placer Recycles to your event, please email

Ever wondered where your waste goes after it’s picked up? Want to see where innovations in recycling, organics recovery, and economic development are coming soon? Community members are invited to tour our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), Construction & Demolition facility, and composting facility.

Due to our facility’s ongoing construction and renovations, the WPWMA’s tours will be able to accommodate only groups of 10 or fewer individuals who are the age of 18 or older. This is subject to change if construction circumstances make it necessary. To request a tour, please complete this form.

For any questions regarding tours of the facility, please email

Do you want to take a virtual tour of the MRF

The WPWMA has contracted with The Eco Hero Show to provide school-wide assemblies for elementary schools throughout western Placer County. Please email for information regarding scheduling assemblies.
