Automated Green Waste Collection

The City of Redlands uses the automated collection system to collect green waste from over 16,000 single family residences one time per week. Following these basic guidelines will ensure efficient collection of your green waste:

  • Separate placement and collection of your organic green waste materials is required in the City of Redlands.
  • Green Waste is defined by Redlands Municipal Code as yard waste; including 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 stumps larger than six inches in diameter.
  • 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 three different types of 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. Credits are not issued for missed collections that are not reported.
  • Containers should be placed curbside at least 3 feet from any obstacle, such as a parked car or fence, and at least 1 foot from other containers.
  • A separate container, marked YARD WASTE ONLY, is provided to each single family residence. Additional containers are available, please contact our customer service group at 909-798-7529 for more information.
  • Certain exceptions to this program exist if you meet the qualifications. Call us for more details.
  • Contaminated green waste 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 a charge of $18.15, or place your container out the following week for regular collection.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Plastic lawn bags are a contaminate and should never be placed in your green waste container.
  • As will all containers, green waste may never exceed the upper perimeter of the container.

Automated Curbside Recycling Program

The City of Redlands distributed 90-gallon containers for automated recycling to over 16,000 single-family residences during May of 2002.
