Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Long Beach Recycles is a part of the Environmental Services Bureau (ESB) in the Department of Public Works. LBRecycles helps residents, visitors, schools, and businesses reduce, reuse, and recycle right in Long Beach.

The Environmental Services Bureau provides a robust trash and recycling collection service that serves over 120,000 residential and commercial customers.
