RecyclingCurbside Recycling Program

Rosemead's curbside recycling program is one easy way for residents to recycle. Follow these guidelines when recycling:

Use the blue bin to recycle:

  • All metal cans - including soft drink, soup, vegetable and pet food cans.
  • All clear glass containers, bottles and jars (no lids please!).
  • Most household containers - including plastic bottles, dish soap, shampoo and milk bottles

If your recyclables won't all fit in your blue bin, call Consolidated Disposal Services (1-888-339-3723 or 1-626-288-7466) and they will deliver a second blue bin at no cost.

Use your green waste containers for:

  • Grass, leaves, and plant trimmings that you are unable to divert through composting or grass recycling (tips on smart gardening are available from LA County Department of Public Works by calling 1-626-458-3524 or visit their website).

Use the waste container for automated collection for:

  • General household waste disposal items.

Also, don't forget that waste containers must be removed from curbsides no later than 8:00 pm on day of collection. Refuse containers should not be placed curbside before 6:00 pm on the day preceding collection. Compliance with these simple regulations will not only improve the neighborhood's appearance, but will ensure that containers won't interfere with the street sweeper.
