Holidays create a one-day delay in collection service (Monday customers’ trash will be picked up on Tuesday, etc.). Athens Services observes the following holidays :
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Christmas Day
If a holiday falls on a Sunday, waste collection services will not be delayed.
All Dumpsters used within the City must be serviced by Athens Services. To order a dumpster please call 888-336-6100. All dumpsters located on the street are subject to a dumpster permit issued by Athens.
Can I place my trash cans in the front yard the night before my trash pick-up day?
No. The Palos Verdes Estates Municipal Code prohibits the placement of refuse containers adjacent to the street or on City Parkland, even on collection day. The ordinance requires that the containers are to be kept in a concealed trash area on the property where the City’s approved refuse hauler retrieves them and returns them after emptying. Please contact Code Enforcement at (310) 378-0383, if you have any questions or concerns.
What recycled materials are collected and do they need to be separated?
Residents are able to co-mingle the recycling and refuse together. Athens transports the co-mingled waste to their Material Recover Facility, and removes the recyclable materials for reuse. This process increases the amount of materials that can be recycled and reused, and decreases what goes to a landfill. Residents can place the co-mingled waste in their refuse containers for pickup.
Additional green containers may be requested at no charge by contacting Athens Services directly. For more information regarding the City’s recycling program, or to request additional containers, please contact Athens Services Customer Service Department at (888) 336-6100.
