WHAT GOES IN EACH BIN?

The standard container allotment for single-family dwellings and each unit of a duplex based on the SRF is one 60-gallon black container for refuse; one 90-gallon green container for yard trimmings; one 90 gallon blue container for recyclables. The standard allowance for multi-family dwellings is one 60-gallon black container per dwelling unit for refuse; one 90 gallon green container for yard trimmings for the lot; one 90-gallon blue container for recyclables for every four units.  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.

LA SANITATION & ENVIRONMENT HAS THREE MAIN PROGRAM AREAS

clean water

LASAN operates and maintains the largest wastewater treatment and collection systems in the United States. It serves a population of more than four million within a 600 square mile service area, including Los Angeles and 29 contracting cities and agencies. Los Angeles’ more than 6,700 miles of public sewers convey about 400 million gallons per day of flow from residences and businesses to the LASAN's four water reclamation plants.

This award-winning program focuses on both flood control and pollution reduction while ensuring Los Angeles’ compliance with federal, state and local regulations and reducing the amount of stormwater pollution flowing into and through regional waterways.

solid resources new

LASAN is responsible for the collection and removal of solid materials and waste in the City of Los Angeles. The City collects refuse, recyclables, yard trimmings, horse manure and bulky items with over 750 vehicles, most of which use clean fuel to reduce emissions.
