Your Waste Carts

Laguna Beach residents are provided with three carts: A gray-lidded cart for recyclables, a green-lidded cart for green waste and organics, and a blue-lidded cart for trash. Waste Management has clear information about what can and cannot be recycled.

Organics Waste Cart collects food scraps (meats, dairy, bakery, fruits and vegetables), yard debris (grass clippings, leaves, sawdust, small tree branches) and food-soiled paper. Do not place green waste or food waste in plastic bags. You can line the organics waste cart with newspaper or paper. Ice plants and palm branches cannot be placed in the organics waste cart. Animal waste cannot be placed in the organics waste cart. Your organic waste is taken to Tierra Verde Industries for composting.
