The City of San Dimas contracts with Waste Management for solid waste services, which includes recycling.  A few helpful recycling tips:

- Recycle bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard.
- Keep food and liquid out of recycle containers.
- Do not bag recyclable items. Place items directly into the recycle container.  
To learn more about recycling and access an array of services visit Waste Management's recycling website at: . If you have individual cart service, all recycling carts are the same size. If you live in a multi-family complex, you may have a recycling dumpster that can vary in size from 1.5 yard-6 yards. 

The City developed the Recycling Guide for local places that will accept materials. It is recommended to call and confirm with the business before taking your items. If you have questions feel free to contact Public Works staff at (909) 394-6240 or at

Used Oil
Used oil is considered a hazardous material and must be disposed of properly.  Through grant funding with CalRecycle, the City has oil drain containers, rags, and funnels available to residents to prevent spills. Used oil is never permitted to be drained into the street or dumped. If you need to dispose of used oil, try calling Sanders Auto in San Dimas or Tire Choice Auto at San Dimas Avenue and Bonita. You may also take oil to a free household hazardous waste round-up event which occur throughout Los Angeles County.
