News update from Laguna Beach City Manager John Pietig's office:
Holiday trash collection schedule and Tree Recycling - Residential and commercial trash pick-up schedules will be delayed by one day through the two holiday weeks. Residents who receive service on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday should place their carts out for pick-up one day later than usual during these two weeks. Waste Management is collecting and recycling holiday trees on the regular collection day, at no charge, between now and Friday, January 18. Trees must be cut to lengths less than four feet. Decorations, tinsel, metal ornaments, and metal stands must be removed from the trees. Flocked trees will be collected but cannot be made into compost due to their chemical content. After January 18, a tree can also be recycled by cutting it up and placing it in the green waste cart.
City Hall Closed on Monday before New Year’s - The New Year’s holiday falls on Tuesday, January 1. City Hall is closed on December 31 and January 1. Essential services such as police, fire, lifeguards, bus service and other functions would still be provided on all these days.
No Holiday Street Sweeping - There will be no street sweeping on Tuesday, January 1. There will be no parking enforcement for those streets posted for street sweeping on this day.
