Repair or Replace Your Bins

Did you know that there is no additional cost to replace or repair your missing or broken trash collection bins (black, blue, green)? Simply call LA Sanitation Department’s 24-hour Customer Care Center and make a request at 1-800-773-2489. Its quick and easy!

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.
