City-Provided Trash and Recycling Service (Single-Family Residences)
Currently, the City of El Segundo provides free residential trash and recycling collection to residential properties of 4 and fewer units. Residents may use their own containers, and the City’s current hauler, Republic Services, will provide one 32-gallon container or two 16-gallon containers for recyclables. Additionally, residents have the option to use their own trash containers as recycling bins by affixing a “Recyclables Only” sticker on those containers/bins, which Republic will also provide at no charge.
Refuse collection is for household refuse only. Do not place the following items in your container: dirt, sod, rock or other debris from construction work, hot ashes (take these items to the transfer station at 1449 W. Rosecrans Ave in Gardena) or, hazardous materials such as oil, gas or paint (take these items to Hyperion at 7660 W. Imperial Ave, Gate B every Saturday and Sunday).
