We heard you—Illegal dumping deteriorates the quality and appearance of Alhambra and endangers the health and wellbeing of our residents.
Beginning April 1, 2023, bulky item sweep service is being reinstated. Residents and businesses will be allowed to discard bulky items on their trash collection days with no prior scheduling required. See the press release for more information.
To account for this programmatic change and the costs associated with conducting such services, residential and commercial rates will be adjusted. Visit the Solid Waste & Recycling tab to see the rates commencing April 1st, 2023.
Beginning April 1, 2023, residents and commercial businesses will be able to discard bulky items on their curb on their scheduled collection day—no prior scheduling with Republic Services is required.
Bulky items must be placed curbside by 6 AM and not obstruct public right-of-way. Do not place items on the street or block sidewalks or driveways.
Do not place items on the curb before noon on the day preceding your regularly scheduled collection day, or you may receive a notice from the City's Code Enforcement Division to remove the items immediately.
Residents living in gated complexes must place bulky items at the curb or in the alley (driver will not be able to go beyond the gate).
If you see illegal dumping or a bulky item not collected on your service day, please contact Republic Services at 1-800-299-4898 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Before discarding, consider donating or selling bulky items, such as furniture and appliances, to extend their life and give someone else a chance to enjoy them. Most major thrift stores will accept these items, but be sure to call ahead first.
