Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Long Beach Recycles is a program within the Public Works Environmental Services Bureau (ESB) that strives to cut down on waste by helping residents, visitors, schools, and businesses reduce, reuse and recycle. We also provide free and easy ways to properly dispose of special waste items that can’t go in the trash, such as household hazardous waste (HHW), electronics and more.

The Environmental Services Bureau’s Refuse Division provides a robust trash and recycling collection service that serves more than nearly 120,000 residential and commercial customers. 

Looking for one of our online refuse/recycling customer service forms? Check out the Useful Links in the blue sidebar to the right.  You can report a collection problem, request to have a refuse or recycling cart replaced or exchanged, request a Special Collection of oversized items such as furniture or electronics, or report illegal dumping that’s occurred in an alley or on the street.  Or, call our Customer Call Center at (562) 570-2876 for assistance with your request.
