2-Cart Waste Collection in the CITY OF LYNWOOD

The City of Lynwood is serviced by a mixed waste and yard waste collection system. This means that residents place all household trash and recyclable materials into the gray “Mixed Waste” cart provided by Waste Resources, and all yard waste in the green “Yard Waste” cart. Recyclables will be separated from household garbage at a Materials Recovery Facility, so you don't need to place your recyclables in a separate container.

For details about what goes in the GREEN cart, click here.

Each service address (1-4 unit residential) receives a 96-gallon gray mixed waste cart. If you feel that the 96-gallon mixed waste cart is too large, you may request a 64-gallon mixed waste cart for a slightly reduced rate. Customers may request one additional gray mixed waste cart for no additional charge, but additional carts after that do incur a additional charge.

Each service address receives a green 64-gallon yard waste cart. Customers may request unlimited additional green carts at no charge.

Additional information about residential services can be found in the latest guide.
