Solid waste (garbage) services are provided by Tahoe-Truckee Sierra Disposal (TTSD) and contracted through the District. TTSD provides home solid waste (garbage) pickup to all Northstar homes every Monday. Garbage routes run normally on all holidays. If your collection day falls on a working holiday, please place garbage out by 6:00 am. If you would like to use this service, please adhere to the following guidelines:
Courtesy dumpsters/recycle bins are now in their permanent home located on the south side of Northstar Drive across from the old Sawmill Flat Road (near the intersection of Basque). These garbage dumpsters are available daily from 7am-8pm for use by all Northstar property owners. Please use these dumpsters if you are unable to place your garbage out for the Monday home pickup (homes and townhomes). For the protection of our bear population, please lock all dumpsters after every use. Do not throw hazardous material, appliances, furniture, yard debris or materials other than normal household garbage into the dumpsters. Recycling dumpsters are also located at this site for cardboard, paper, plastic and glass. Should you require additional information or assistance, contact NCSD at (530) 562-0747. For additional information about pickup times, hazardous material disposal or general landfill disposal information, please call Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal at (530) 583-0148 or refer to the Placer County - Waste Management Division website.
Procedures for Disposing of Debris: To assist property owners, the District makes periodic curbside pick-ups at residences throughout the summer for pine needles and branches.
