Recycle Right

Recycling is good for the planet because it conserves natural resources. Many materials that end up in the recycle bin contaminate the load and even cause damage to sorting machines. Common non-recyclables include: plastic bags, shipping plastic bubbles and packing peanuts, polystyrene foam, napkins and paper towels, used paper plates and cups, and PPE (personal protection equipment). Let’s all Recycle Right in Malibu.

Malibu Municipal Code Section 8.32.650 allows trash and recycle containers out on the street and sidewalk only during specific times. View a printer-friendly flyer.

  • Keep containers out of public view until pick-up day, such as in the garage, or in a back or side yard
  • Place containers on the street and sidewalk no sooner than 5:30 p.m. the day before your scheduled collection
  • Remove all containers from the street and sidewalk no later than 8:00 p.m. on collection day
  • Neglecting these rules is unsightly, unsafe, and a violation of local laws

Information For Haulers

A City permit is required for hauling debris, green waste and recyclables from residential and commercial properties. Waste haulers responsible for handling Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste must obtain a Hauler Permit prior to collecting, hauling and transporting C&D waste from within city limits. The exception is a contractor performing self-hauling.

A list of permitted haulers is provided for filming projects, construction and/or clean-up projects. Non-permitted haulers may be subject to fines and/or removal of their bins.
