WHAT GOES IN EACH BIN?

Each household in the City of Los Angeles receives 3 bins: BLUE for recyclables, GREEN for yard trimmings, and BLACK for non-recyclable material or trash.  Some households have brown bins, by request, for horse manure. By placing material in the proper bins, you can prevent contamination that occurs when non-recyclable items are discarded in the BLUE bin and when anything other than yard trimmings are placed in the GREEN bin. Non-recyclable items such as paper or boxes with grease or food residue, treated wood and wood-products, cloth/fabric, and fats/oils/grease in sealed containers belong in your BLACK bin. Hazardous waste and e-waste may be taken to S.A.F.E. Centers. If you have questions, need to request a new bin, or have items that are too large for your bins, please call our Customer Care Center at 1-800-773-2489.
