Dumpster Program

Dumpster Program: The City of Eureka and Recology (City Garbage Company of Eureka) have been working together since 1991 to provide free dumpsters to communities in Eureka to clean-up neighborhoods.  A free one-time dumpster is available to those eligible moderate to very low income households (120% of median income or less as per the table below) who are unable to afford the cost of garbage removal.  To qualify, a property must be determined to contain trash and debris in a quantity sufficient to be determined a health or safety issue or blight.  

If you are an owner occupant of a residential property, you may qualify for a free 20 yard dumpster.  If you are:  

1) income eligible as per the chart in this attachment

 2) your property is located within the City limits of Eureka

3) have not had a dumpster before

4) you are unable to afford the cost of a dumpster, but are able to provide the coordination of labor to remove the trash and debris, you maybe be eligible.  

Rental income properties and commercially used properties are not eligible under this program.

You will be required to provide evidence of regular garbage service.
