For Green Carts:

The City of Redding provides up to two 96-gallon green waste carts per single family residence.  A smaller 64-gallon cart is an option.  This is a free service.  For houses with an average size lot, one 96-gallon cart is usually sufficient.  Larger lots or those in areas with a lot of mature trees may need a second cart to accommodate the leaves. If you order a second cart, you must keep it for at least one year.  Green Waste Recycling Rules.
