The Solid Waste Division is responsible for complying with the Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989 (AB 939), which mandates that the City reduce its waste by 50% from the 1990 generation level. Once the reduction is achieved, it must be maintained. The City of Redondo Beach has enacted numerous programs to meet and exceed the mandated 50% diversion.

Athens Services, the City's exclusive franchise waste hauler, is the largest recycler in the Los Angeles County. Athens is committed to helping Redondo Beach divert 75% of its waste from the landfill through expanded recycling programs and the Residential Curbside Compost Collection Program. 

Redondo Beach will now be competing for one of the best recycling rates in the State of California.

The City's recycling programs include residential curbside recycling and residential curbside compost collection as well as multi-family and commercial bin recycling collection services.

All schools in Redondo Beach participate in the school recycling program and many have organics and worm composting programs too. The City provides ongoing education for all of these programs to residents, businesses and schools.  

In addition, the Solid Waste Division is responsible for managing and ensuring that Athens Services
complies with the Solid Waste Handling Services Agreement. The Agreement requires Athens Services to collect the refuse, recyclables and the organics recycling streams. The Solid Waste Division manages all complaints and service issues relating to Athens Services.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Solid Waste and Recycling staff at (310) 318-0686, ext. 4193.
