FAQs Street Sweeping

Is parking restriction enforced on street sweeping days when its raining?

Every effort is made to sweep the streets, even when it rains. Vehicles are still subject to citation regardless of the weather conditions.  [return to top]

Can I sweep leaves and grass into the street for the street sweeper to clean up?

No, you must place this waste in your green barrel. The street sweeper is not designed to remove piles of leaves and debris, and therefore will bypass them. Remember everything that gets thrown in the street goes down the storm drain, which leads directly to the ocean. [return to top]

How do I obtain a parking permit for my vehicle on street sweeping days?

Contact Public Safety at (562) 902-2960. [return to top]

FAQs Trash Collection

Who do I call if my trash barrels are not emptied?

Contact the City's trash hauler EDCO Disposal at (714) 522-3577.

Can I dispose of my old television and computer?

Electronics are now banned from California landfills. However, you may take your electronic equipment to a free Household Hazardous Waste Roundup. They are held every Saturday and open to all LA County residents. Call (888) CLEAN-LA or go to their website at for the closest location.

When trash is delayed one day due to a holiday, my trash collection and street sweeping end up on the same day. How do I handle this?

During these times we request that trash barrels be placed up on the curb as not to hinder the street sweeper. Be sure there are no cars parked in front of the containers.

What do I do when I have large bulky items that will not fit in my barrel?

Contact EDCO Disposal at (714) 522-3577 at least one business day prior day to your regular service day to schedule a bulky item pick up. EDCO Disposal hours of operation are between 8:00 a.m. and
5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

What items go in each of my three colored trash barrels?

  • Blue container - recyclables only
  • Green container - yard waste only
  • Grey container - non-recyclable refuse only

If you'd like a detailed list of the accepted items you may contact EDCO Disposal at (714) 522-3577.

There is no charge for an additional blue recycling container, but there is a small fee for the black trash container. If your containers need to be repaired or replaced contact EDCO Disposal.
