recycLA Rates

recycLA provides uniform and transparent monthly rates for multi-family and commercial customers throughout the City of Los Angeles. Your recycLA Service Provider will conduct a waste assessment of your property and work with you to determine your optimal level of service for the lowest possible cost. The 2017 Rate Table will assist you in understanding how the monthly rate for your service level is calculated. The rate scenarios that follow also demonstrate how rates are calculated and how you may be able to reduce your costs through increased recycling.

Rate Scenarios:

  • If you have one (1), 3 cubic yard Black Bin and one (1), 3 cubic yard Blue Bin that are both serviced (collected/emptied) once per week, what is your monthly service rate?
    • $216.72 (Base rate–1/week)
  • If you have two (2), 3 cubic yard Black Bins that are serviced twice per week, what is your monthly service rate?
    •  $406.42 (Base rate-2/week) + $250.93 (Additional Black Bin-2/week) = $657.35
  • How can you potentially reduce your monthly service rate?
    • Convert one of the Black Bins to Blue Bin service.
      • $406.42 (Base rate-2/week)
    • Retain the two Black Bins, add two Blue Bins and reduce service frequency for all bins to once per week.
      • $216.72 (Base rate-1/week) + $133.76 (Additional Black Bin-1/week) = $350.48

Food Rescue

Did you know you can reduce your solid waste service needs – and potentially your costs - by participating recycLA’s food rescue program? Donating your surplus food will not only reduce the amount of food that is disposed in landfills, but will also provide food to residents who suffer from food insecurity. All recycLA Service Providers are required to partner with a food rescue organization that can coordinate the collection of your food donations. Contact your FSP to begin participating.

Roll Off and Compactor Service

Did you know that recycLA offers both permanent and temporary Roll Off and Compactor services? Either or both could be the perfect solution if you anticipate generating large quantities of recyclable materials that will exceed your current capacity. There is a nominal fee for the delivery and collection of the bin, but there is no “per ton” charge for your recyclables.

Multi-Family Properties

If you own or manage a multi-family residence currently participating in the City’s MultiFamily Residential Recycling Program (MFRP), you may be able to keep these recycling services at no additional costs. Contact your recycLA Service Provider to learn more.
