Long Beach Trash Schedule 2023 (Bulk Pickup, Holidays, Maps)

We’re here to help you find the Long Beach trash pickup schedule for 2023 including bulk pickup, recycling, holidays, and maps.

The City of Long Beach is in California with Lakewood and Los Angeles to the north, Huntington Beach to the south, Anaheim to the east, and Torrance to the west.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Long Beach and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
