For current information regarding the City's transition to automated residential refuse collection please visit the Residential Refuse Collection page under Current Projects & Issues.
Residential refuse collection is a service provided to approximately 27,000 homes in the City of Newport Beach. The Refuse crew manually collects refuse each day. Collected material is transported to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where it is sorted for recyclables.
The City is required by State law to recycle at least 50% of all trash generated. Both residential and commercial refuse is sorted for recyclables. The City of Newport Beach is currently in compliance with State recycling regulations. Additionally, construction and demolition projects generate a high volume of recyclable material that is counted towards the City’s recycling rate.
Franchised Haulers provide commercial solid waste collection within the city. This includes contractor-generated solid waste for residential projects. Franchised Haulers are required to comply with state-mandated recycling and diversion requirements, and provide the City with monthly tonnage report, which includes collected and recycled weight in tons.
Franchised Haulers can also provide dumpster bin rental services within the city. Please call the haulers for individual rates.
