Multi-Family Complexes Must Recycle

As of July 1, 2012, California State law requires Multi-Family Complexes with five or more units to arrange for recycling services. Note: California State law requires apartment owners of complexes of less than 5 units to offer recycling services at resident(s) request. All apartment owners may require tenants to recycle.

What is Recyclable in Tehama County?

​Multi-Family Complexes may choose one of the following options to comply with state law:
  1. Subscribe to a recycling collection service. If located in the unincorporated County of the City of Red Bluff, contact GreenWaste of Tehama at (530) 528-8500. If located in the City of Corning, contact Waste Management at (530) 824-4700. Recycling service provided by either Green Waste of Tehama or Waste Management features single-stream recycling. Simply place all of your recyclables (cans, bottles, plastic, paper, cardboard, etc.) in the recycling dumpster. There is no need to further segregate the recyclables by material type. In many instances you can reduce your garbage service by implementing recycling.

  2. Donate recyclable materials to a recycling company. Contact North Valley Services at (530) 528-3035 for free paper recycling or donate to another recycling company.

  3. Self-haul recyclable material to the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at the Tehama County/Red Bluff Landfill for free, as long as all items are recyclable and segregated from trash.

  4. Self-haul recyclables to a local recycling center (e.g. Big Foot Recycling, or Rob’s Recycling, etc.)

Please contact the Tehama County Solid Waste Management Agency for assistance with recycling services, including but not limited to FREE recycling bins, while supplies last. Please call the Agency at (530) 528-1103 for further compliance information.
