Solid Waste

The Department of Solid Waste oversees the management of solid waste in Deschutes County. We take pride in providing a safe place for residents to dispose of or recycle unwanted materials.

Knott Landfill Recycling and Transfer Facility is the only landfill in Deschutes County and is estimated to remain open until 2029. For waste disposal in outlying areas of Deschutes County, we operate four transfer stations. These include the Negus Transfer Station located in Redmond, the Northwest Transfer Station near Sisters, the Southwest Transfer Station between Sunriver and La Pine, and the Alfalfa Transfer Station located off Walker Road near Alfalfa.

The Department of Solid Waste sponsors money-saving recycling and collection events throughout the year. These include annual appliance recycling events, Christmas tree recycling events, year-round hazardous waste recycling for households and yard debris collection events.
