A VEHICLE DISPOSAL AMNESTY EVENT at the Loyalton Landfill was approved unanimously by the Sierra County Board of Supervisors at its regular meeting held in Downieville on May 2nd.
This program has been offered successfully a number of times and will be free disposal of junk vehicles. Sierra County Planning Director Tim Beals stated this event was really being prompted as the County just received a bid for scrap metal which is pretty high right now and to help in the clean up of the Loyalton Mobile Home Park as there are tons of metal all over. Beals said the event would be County wide, but residents would have to take the vehicles to the Loyalton Landfill, where the County will have to drain all the fluids. The event date has not been set yet.
