you need to rent a dumpster for a clean-up job? The Solid Waste
Utility has various dumpster sizes available for use within the Redding
City limits. Call our Customer Service Department at 224-6201

descriptive term. We actually consider a "container" to be 1.5 -
2 yards in capacity. Containers are ideal for miscellaneous
household garbage and green waste. We call anything larger than

boxes are suitable for roofing materials and construction debris (see
guidelines below for specifics). Terms and conditions are listed below.
