Mulch Update

During to the Creek Fire, our Lopez Canyon facility suffered the loss of all of its mulching equipment. We have moved equipment from the smaller Harbor Yard and are now producing mulch and compost again, but at lower quantities.  Mulch is now available at our Boyle Heights and Lopez Canyon self-service sites.  Soon we will be replenishing the self-service sites in Van Nuys and San Pedro.  The addresses of these sites are available here.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer home mulch deliveries for a few months.  We apologize for the convenience and thank you all for your patience.

Collection Delays due to Storm

Due to severe rain and road conditions, we were unable to service the following streets this week:

2200-2300 blocks of Mayberry (due to road work, not rain)
1600-2200 block of Baxter
2100 block of Fargo
2100 block of Ewing
7100 block of Sycamore Trail
3200 block of Goodview Trail
6900 block of Woody Trail
1500 block of Crater Lane

We apologize for the inconvenience and will be back to collect bins as soon as the rain stops and roads clear.  In the meantime, we advise pulling your bins back in to prevent them from being carried off in the rain. Thank you for your understanding. Please be safe!
