The City of Redlands is dedicated to the concept and practice of
environmental preservation. We are constantly seeking new
technologies and services which will not only preserve our
environment, but provide more efficient and economical
collection, recycling, and disposal of waste materials, while
meeting all health, safety, and regulatory requirements.
Our extensive solid waste and recycling services and programs are
designed with you, the customer, in mind.
All refuse, green waste, and recycling containers should be
placed for collection prior to 6:00 A.M. of your regular
collection day to avoid being missed. Collection can occur at any
time between 6:00 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. or later, and can change
from week to week.
Three different trucks will pass your residence to collect
refuse, yard waste, and recycling waste throughout the day. A
missed collection must be reported to our office within 24 hours
of your regular collection day to receive a make-up collection.

Automated Green Waste Collection
Separate collection of your organic green waste materials is
required in the City. Place green waste materials in the
container marked YARD WASTE ONLY.
Green Waste includes yard waste such as grass cuttings,
prunings, tree branches & leaves, untreated wood, sawdust, and
other discarded plant material from private and/or public areas
It does not include palm fronds, cactus or tree limbs and
stumbs larger than six inches in diameter
As with all containers, green waste may never exceed the upper
perimeter of the container.
Contaminated Containers Cannot be Collected by Your Driver
If contamination is found prior to collection, your container
will be tagged with a green tag by the driver and left. Once you
have removed the contaminates, you can request a special pickup
at an extra charge, or you may place your container out the
following week for regular collection.
