An increase in self-hauler business has caused extremely long waits and is impacting customer and staff safety at the Los Reales Landfill. Residents who are using extra time at home to clean their houses and yards are asked to only come to the landfill if absolutely necessary. Lines have been very long, especially in the afternoons and on Saturdays, per the City's Environmental and General Services Department.
Public health experts are recommending that people stay home and only leave if their work and personal needs absolutely require it. If yard waste and other debris can be contained at home, visit the landfill once stay-at-home recommendations have eased.
