No. Enforceable by Eureka Municipal Code, unless exempt through this program, every household in Eureka has mandated curbside waste and recycling service by Recology. Once approved for exemption, billing will cease for the exemption period.
No. This exemption program is specifically for households who generate such a small amount of waste that weekly curbside service is unnecessary and in turn are contributing to positive waste diversion efforts for our community. If you generate a significant amount of solid waste per week, you are not eligible for an exemption.
Waste and recycling must be regulated to the extent necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public, to conserve disposal capacity, to meet state laws and to ensure cost effective public service.
No, the exemption is voided as soon as service is reinstated.
