Kids, Let's Have Some Fun!

Ever wonder what happens to trash? Any item placed in a trash can is collected and transported up to the top of the Tehama County/Red Bluff Landfill. Check out how landfills work to learn more.

What happens to my recyclables? When placed in a recycling bin, the recyclable materials end up at the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) onsite at the Tehama County/Red Bluff Landfill. The MRF processes featured on the link above are similar to the Tehama County/Red Bluff MRF. 

Can you navigate through the Landfill Maze? Make the right choices along the way to reduce waste and help keep the landfill from growing.
