2017-18 Holiday Season Service Schedules for La Habra

Trash Collection

For the Thanksgiving holiday, remember that trash collection will be delayed one day for Thursday and Friday only.  Thursday’s trash collection will take place on Friday November 24, 2017 and Friday’s collections will take place on Saturday November 25, 2017.  Normal schedules will resume the following week.

Christmas Day falls on Monday December 25th and as a result, trash service will be delayed by one day, each day, for the rest of the week. If your regular pickup day is Monday, your trash will be picked up on Tuesday and so on. Regular Friday customers that week will be picked up on Saturday, December 30. The trash pickup schedule for the week of January 1, 2018 will also follow the same schedule and all trash services will be delayed for one day.
 
Street Sweeping and Ticketing
For the Thanksgiving holiday, street sweeping services will not occur and will not be made up for the entire week.  In addition, sweeping citations will not be issued during the holiday week.  The regular sweeping and parking enforcement schedules will resume the following week.

Since Christmas and New Year’s Day both fall on a Monday this year, street sweeping services will be delayed one day, each day, for the remainder of the week.  Parking enforcement for street sweeping will be delayed for those two weeks and will continue again on a normal schedule starting on January 8, 2018.

La Habra to Offer Used Cooking Oil Collection through the 2017-18 Holiday Season
The City of La Habra’s annual Used Cooking Oil Collection Program will be available to La Habra residents through this year’s holiday season. The program will start on November 15, 2017 and will continue until after the New Year ending on January 31, 2018. The program is held to offer residents a location to dispose of their holiday cooking oil. The process of deep frying a holiday turkey generates a large amount of waste oil.  Through this program, residents will have an easy option for disposal.  Cooking oil should never be disposed of down the drain or in the trash.  This program is offered to La Habra residents by appointment only. Please call for an appointment through the Public Works Department at (562) 383-4170.
