Debris Boxes & Containers

The Cities of Fortuna, Rio Dell, Ferndale, Willow Creek and many parts of Humboldt County have an exclusive waste hauling franchise agreement with Recology Eel River and are the only contractor permitted to place and collect debris boxes throughout these areas.

Debris boxes are used for construction and demolition (C&D) waste generated from construction, renovation, repair, and demolition of houses, large building structures, roads, bridges, piers, and dams.  They can also be used for general recyclables and trash.

All boxes are for a (7) day rental unless pre-arranged with our office. Any boxes kept over 7 days will be charged an extra daily rate. We offer the following box sizes:

4 YD. UP TO 400 LBS

20 YD. UP TO 5000 LBS
30 YD. UP TO 7500 LBS
40 YD. UP TO 10,000 LBS

Not all sizes are available in all areas.

  • The customer takes full responsibility for any damage to curbs, sidewalks, driveways, landscaping and underground utilities if the driver is instructed by the customer to place the box off the street.
  • Boxes cannot be filled over the top or be over weight. Over weight boxes cannot be transported and return trips will be at the customer’s expense.
