Temporary service is defined as service that occurs a maximum of 30 days at a specific location per calendar year, or service provided for construction and demolition projects that require a City building and/or grading permit. Service for City permitted construction and demolition projects may remain as long as the building and/or grading permit is valid. Additionally, property owners or contractors may self-haul debris using their own vehicles and equipment.
The City establishes the rate ceiling for temporary service. Customers who need temporary service can compare the competitive service rates offered by the City's Limited Franchise operators listed above. There is one charge to rent the dumpster and an additional charge to dispose of the contents. The disposal charge is based on a per ton gate/processing fee. Limited Franchise bin rental rates and gate/processing fees are available below. For questions about temporary solid waste service rates, contact the City's Sustainability Division by phone at (805) 449-7283 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Contractors and waste haulers are not restricted in their disposal options for C&D debris, as long as projects meet the City's 65% debris diversion requirements.
Projects that utilize mixed waste recycling will require that materials are processed at a mixed C&D processing facility. The nearest mixed C&D processing facility is located approximately 10 miles north-east of Thousand Oaks at the Simi Valley Landfill. Click here for more information about the Simi Valley Landfill.
Additionally, the City of Thousand Oaks currently accepts material processing at facilities certified by the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation. Contractors utilizing any of these certified facilities must use the listed Mixed C&D Debris Recycling Rate in determining their diversion rate on the C&D Recycling Plan and the C&D Recycling Report.
