Do you have Household Hazardous waste you don't know what to do with? Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events, operated by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works and the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts, are one-day, drive-through collection events where residents are invited to drive to a specific location to drop off their hazardous waste. Household hazardous waste is any product labeled: toxic, poison, corrosive, flammable, combustible or irritant that is disposed of. Electronic waste, also known as E-waste, is also collected at these events. Visit HERE, to learn about Los Angeles County Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste Event program and view the Round-Up schedule.

The City of San Dimas Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Directory is also available at City Hall for items that cannot go in your recycle bin, but should avoid the landfill!

Fall Leaf Recycling Program

As the fall and winter season emerges San Dimas residents can take advantage of the fall leaf recycling program that allows an unlimited amount of extra leaves and green waste to be left for collection. Simply place any green waste that doesn't fit in your cart in bags, and leave it on the curb on your usual collection day. This program runs December through February.

Christmas Tree Recycling
After the holidays, residents with curbside recycling collection will also be able to recycle real Christmas trees at the curb for three weeks after Christmas. When the time comes, please remove all decorations, ornaments, lights, garland, and tinsel, as well as the stand. If the stand is not removed from your tree, the tree will not be picked up for recycling. If your tree is more than 6 feet tall, please cut it into two pieces before placing it at the curb, it should be bare. Place the bare tree next to your normal recycling bin on your collection day.
Christmas trees are picked up by a separate truck and will be taken to a facility where they will be shredded and used as "alternative daily cover" at the landfill. Using this shredded material reduces blowing litter at the landfill and replaces solid that would need to be purchased to cover each day's trash. Participation in this program helps the City of San Dimas meet California requirements to divert thousands of tons of materials from area landfills.
For more information on this or other recycling programs please call the City of San Dimas Environmental Coordinator at (909) 394-6244.

Assembly Bill 341 Mandatory Commercial Recycling

The Passage of Assembly Bill 341 required the City to adopt a plan which mandates ALL businesses generating four (4) or more cubic yards of waste and including ALL multifamily complexes with five (5) or more units to have a recycling program in place in an attempt to achieve a statewide 75% diversion waste rate by the year 2020. This requirement became effective July 1, 2012.The Goals of this regulation are to:

  •  Reduce commercial solid waste from landfills
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  •  Create jobs and expand recycling manufacturing in California

To be in compliance with this law, businesses and multifamily dwellings can take one or any combination of the following in order to reuse, recycle, compost or otherwise divert solid waste from disposal:

  •  Self-haul recyclable material for reclamation
  • Subscribe to recycling service through the City's franchised hauler
  • Arrange for pickup of recyclables from a third party recycle
  •  Subscribe to a recycling service that may include mixed waste processing that yields diversion results comparable to source separation.
