Bishop Waste has recently acquired the Inyo County recycling operations from the Sierra Conservation Project. We look forward to growing and expanding the Inyo County recycling services for residents and businesses.
Sierra Conservation Project will continue to provide recycling services in Mammoth and Mono County and work closely with Bishop Waste and Mammoth Disposal to insure the recycling programs in the Eastern Sierra grow and thrive in the future.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to reducing the amount of recyclable material deposited in our local landfills.
Creating defensible space is essential to improve your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire. It’s the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it. This space is needed to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and it protects your home from catching fire – either from direct flame contact or radiant heat. Defensible space is also important for the protection of the firefighters defending your home.
10 Steps to Defensible Space
1. Thin tree and brush cover.
2. Dispose of slash and debris left from thinning.
3. Remove dead limbs, leaves and other litter.
4. Stack firewood away from home.
5. Maintain irrigated green belt around the home.
6. Mow dry grasses and weeds.
7. Prune branches to 10 feet above the ground.
8. Trim branches.
9. Clean roof and gutters.
10. Reduce density of surrounding forest.
Let us know if you need a roll-off container delivered to your home, work or job site!
Here’s a great tip!
Bag grass clippings to prevent odor and sticking to cart.
Please, please, please do not put hazardous waste in your residential trash for pick-up. Help us keep the Eastern Sierra clean!
Under no circumstances should toxic or hazardous waste be placed in any of the containers! Batteries, electronics, thermometers, and fluorescent bulbs can not be placed in the trash.

Earth Day inspires communities to help make our planet a better place now, and for future generations. Why not plan to get involved this year? Here are ways you can…
“One of the best things we can do for our environment is to be informed citizens,” said Rick Vahl, director of Bishop Waste and Mammoth Disposal. Bishop Waste will be offering “Green Talks” at Earth Day in the Bishop City Park on April 18th to help educate residents about a variety of topics, including curbside recycling, starting a recycling program at your workplace and a big-picture view of how waste is managed locally. This free event is the perfect opportunity to learn the ins and outs and dos and don’ts of garbage, recycling and yard waste once it leaves your curb.
“We are pleased to be hosting the first annual Trash Triathlon from 3:00-4:00 PM in the front of the Bishop City Park. Teams of six will compete in a recycle relay, trash toss and recycle puzzle. It’s meant to be fun and draw some attention to promoting a clean, responsible way to deal with trash,” said Rick Vahl. To get involved, please contact Bishop Waste at 760-872-6561.
Rick also said, “It’s important to remember, the trash can is not the place for all trash.” Bishop Waste is giving the community a chance to dispose of household hazardous waste properly and for free. Residents can bring household batteries and drop them in a special bin at the Bishop Waste Booth. A majority of Eastern Sierra residents throw their recyclables and household hazardous waste in their trash, which is filling up our landfill. Bishop Waste will give residents an opportunity to bundle trash and recycling services to alleviate this eminent concern.
On April 19th we partnered with Sierra Conservation Project to work a booth at the Sunrise Rotary Earth Day event. It was an opportunity for us to talk with people about how we manage our trash and what we can do to recycle.
Bishop Waste donated 2 – 20cy roll off bins on April 19th for the community of Big Pine to help with fire prevention. Residents were able to bring all their green waste and drop it off at Mendenhall Park for no charge.
Over the course of 4 days in April our team donated our equipment to help clean up Buckley Ponds. We were able to haul 56 loads of material that was scrapped from the bottom of the lake to create a great fishing spot for our community. We were proud to be a part of this volunteer event.
