Illegal Waste Haulers

The City and Josephine County have franchise agreements to provide solid waste services. ONLY these franchised organizations are authorized to pick up, haul, and dispose of solid waste within the county. Waste haulers have bins that can be used for debris hauling and if you are approached by individuals to haul away your debris, call to verify if it is their container or you may be held financially responsible.
