The City of Signal Hill exclusively contracts with EDCO Disposal for refuse and recycling collection services. All City residents, businesses, and developers are required to use EDCO for the collection of regular trash, recyclables, and debris. Please refer to the Trash and Recycling Services Guide for more information. Participation in the City’s recycling program is also mandatory for single-family and multi-family dwelling units.
Refuse Collection Schedules
Please contact EDCO directly at 562-597-0608 to initiate service, cancel service, and/or request a temporary bin. A temporary bin placed on a City street also requires a City Encroachment Permit. Please contact Public Works at 562-989-7351 for permit information.
