Trash and Recyclables Collection During COVID-19 Emergency Response

March 30, 2020

The City's contract waste hauler, CalMet Services, will continue to collect trash, recyclables, green waste and bulky items in Cerritos while we all work together to flatten the curve on COVID-19. Maintaining these essential services without interruption is a priority for the City. Out of an abundance of caution, facilities that process collected recyclables have suspended operations. Therefore, the City is allowing CalMet Services to dispose of recyclables at landfills on a temporary basis. Cerritos residents may see only one truck collecting the material from their trash bins during this time. However, all residents and businesses should continue to separate recyclables and green/organic waste and place them in the correct bin so that the City can resume recovering recyclables as soon as processing facilities resume operation.
