Plan for Holiday Trash and Street Sweeping Services

Dec 25, 2022 08:03PM ● By Mb News Staff
Now that you've enjoyed your holiday weekend, it's time to get that trash out and move those cars as usual. Given that Christmas (December 25) fell on a Sunday this year, the trash collection and street sweeping will proceed according to its regular schedule for the week of December 26.

Red-bagged (free) parking meters will also end on December 26.

Excess Trash and Recycling Collection

You're probably going to have lots of extra trash and recycling after a big holiday season. Waste Management will collect any additional trash and recycling materials that do not fit in your cart from December 26 through January 14 on your regular collection day only.

Place your extra materials in bags, next to the container they represent (extra bags of trash next to trash cart, extra bags of recycling next to recycling cart, etc.). All bags or broken-down boxes must be at the curb before 7:30 a.m. All boxes should still be broken down. 

Tree Collection

After the holidays, Waste Management will also collect and recycle holiday trees. Collection will occur on your regular collection days from December 26 through January 14.

To recycle your tree, place it next to your cart before 7:30 a.m. on your regular collection date for free pick-up and recycling. Trees must be less than 7 feet long or cut into 7-foot sections (neither Waste Management nor city employees can cut trees for residents). 

Please remove all lights, decorations, tinsel, ornaments, and metal stands. Flocked trees will be collected at the curb but cannot be recycled.

If you have questions about your refuse service, refuse bill or materials you need to dispose, please contact Waste Management directly at (310) 830-7100.

Red-Bagged Meters Ending

Take advantage of all of the free parking you can through Christmas Day. The red-bagged meters offering complimentary parking from the city will come down on December 26. 

Note that the state-owned meters at the Manhattan Beach Pier, as well as the county-owned meters at the El Porto beach/26th Street parking lots, are not included in the meter bagging. Before and after December 26, do not assume that parking is free unless you specifically see a red bag on the meter.
