Redding kicks off foam polystyrene recycling program
Residents and businesses in the City of Redding now have the opportunity to recycle foam polystyrene (aka Styrofoam™), thanks in part to a $49,000 grant from the Foam Recycling Coalition. The City’s Solid Waste Transfer Station has purchased and installed a foam densifier. Densifiers compact collected materials into condensed polystyrene bricks that are shipped to end markets and then recycled into new products.

Why were utility rates recently adjusted?
The rate increases will provide funding for resources needed to invest in the operation, maintenance, and rehabilitation of the utilities. See the City Council Presentation from September 2016 for more information.

Important drought information
On April 7th, 2015 the City of Redding adopted a new Water Shortage Contingency Plan and until May of 2016, the City was implementing Stage 2. Because of customer efforts and good precipitation during the winter, we have received a 100% water supply allocation from the Central Valley Project. Therefore, we are easing restrictions and moving to Stage 1. Voluntary conservation measures are in place, with a few exceptions - State mandated prohibitions not included in our current Plan.
