Disposal in Tehama County

Out-of-county waste is not accepted at the Tehama County/Red Bluff Landfill.

There are two options for managing trash, recycling and yard waste in Tehama County.

  1. Subscribe to a trash collection service provider. Locate your garbage and recycling company. Please note: yard waste collection services are for residents only.
  2. Self-Haul your trash, recyclables and yard waste to the Landfill. See Self-Haul Tips, Landfill Acceptance Policy, and Landfill Fees.

Divert your food waste from your trash by starting a backyard compost pile. View our page on backyard composting to get started.

Here in Tehama County, disposal is the last resort!

Remember the 4Rs:

  1. Reduce →
