More than 50% of your household waste is organic material that can be put into green bins. The green bins collect organic waste from households and turns it into compost. Composting is the most sustainable option for managing organic waste. Composting food waste and other organic waste produces a beneficial product using feedstock that is otherwise wasted in the landfill. While a landfill has a limited life, a composting plant can continue to process waste indefinitely.
DO NOT place the items listed below in your greenwaste - put these items in the TRASH cart!
Dispose of green waste at the Maintenance Facility year round. Bring lawn trimmings ( no sod) and tree/brush/plant clippings to the drop-off stall located at the north end of the parking lot at 150 Illinois Street. When available, FREE mulch is provided for El Segundo residents.
