Irrigation Tubing

Alternative ways to recycle
Landfill (Trash) Cart Special Instructions Facility Drop-Off

Small amounts disposed of at home need to go in the landfill cart.  Irrigation tubing can tangle with our recycling machinery and is not allowed in the blue recycling cart.

Large amounts of irrigation hose and drip tubing can be recycled separately at the Napa Recycling & Composting Facility. The tubing need to be clean (little or no dirt) and in rolls. These rolls cannot go in the blue recycling cart and must be dropped off separately at our facility. Wire must be removed and recycled in separate rolls.

Burned drip house (from wildfire cleanup) is not recyclable and must be disposed of in the landfill cart.



Do Not Recycle

Irrigation tubing can get tangled up in sorting equipment at recycling facilities, damaging the machinery and creating safety hazards for workers. Never put irrigation tubing in the recycling.

Take Large Amounts to Landfill

If your tubing does not fit in your garbage bin, take it to the landfill for disposal. To be disposed of curbside, tubing and other garbage must fit inside of your bin.

Alternative Ways to Recycle
