Placer County Environmental Utilities and Recology Auburn Placer are opening free disposal sites this weekend to drop-off spoiled food resulting from all the power outages. The option lets people dispose of food at the transfer station instead of waiting days for garbage service to pick it up. According to Placer County, it can also help deter bears and other animals from being drawn to the area by the spoiled food.
