Roseburg Disposal Company has served our community since 1932, when Norm and Orville “Noisy” John – two young brothers needing work during the Great Depression – started the city’s first trash collection business, Roseburg Garbage Company. Today, the company still run by the John family offers curbside-only collection of certain recyclables.

Douglas County Public Works’ Solid Waste Division operates 11 transfer stations to collect waste and recycling from the public. The county offers the state’s lowest disposal fees and largest number of transfer sites per square mile – more than any other Oregon county.
Please help prevent landfill/transfer station fires – especially during wildfire season. Lithium batteries in cell phones, computers and tablets cause 75 percent of landfill and transfer bin fires -- so please recycle those hazardous waste materials locally. Other items to keep out of transfer stations and landfills: Burning charcoal, coal and hot ash; used fireworks; propane tanks; fire extinguishers, oil, oil-soaked rags, paint cans and chemicals; explosives and radioactive materials; electronics, cell phones, TVs and light bulbs; or cigarettes, lighters and vaping items.
Did you know? You have many other recycling alternatives for anything from art supplies, appliances, anti-freeze and automobiles to books, clothes, plant pots, Styrofoam and much more.
