Waste and Recycling Holiday Schedule - Residential and Commercial Services

Trash Collection

If the holiday falls during the work week, collection for the remainder of the week will be postponed by one day. For example, if the 4th of July falls on a Monday, and your normal collection day is on Thursday, your pickup for that week will be on Friday.

Holiday Schedule Delayed Week


If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, trash will be collected on your normal collection day with no delays to your pickup.

Holiday Schedule No Delay


Street Sweeping and Ticketing

The street sweeping schedule follows the trash collection schedule.  If a holiday falls on a resident’s regular sweeping day during the work week, sweeping for the remainder of the week will be postponed by one day. For example, if the 4th of July falls on a Monday, and your normal sweeping day is on Thursday, your sweeping day for that week will be on Friday. 

During any holiday week, if your regular sweeping day is on a Friday, your street will not be swept the next day on Saturday. Instead, it will be swept again when the regular sweeping schedule returns the following week.  

Parking enforcement for street sweeping typically does not occur between December 24 and the Monday following the New Year's Holiday.  

Overnight Parking

The City of La Habra typically suspends enforcement of the overnight parking ordinance during the holiday season.  Enforcement of the parking ordinance will not occur starting at 12:00am on the Friday before the Thanksgiving holiday through the Sunday following the New Year's Day holiday.  Enforcement resumes on the Monday following the New Year's Holiday at 12:00 a.m.

For overnight parking or other ticketing questions, please contact the La Habra Police Department at 562-383-4300.

La Habra to Offer Used Cooking Oil Collection through the 2020 to 2021 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, 2020 and will continue until after the New Year ending on January 15, 2021.  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.  Fortunately, through this program, residents will have an easy option for disposal.  All cooking oil collected through this program is recycled into fuel or biodiesel.  Cooking oil should never be disposed of down the drain or in the trash.  Remember to filter out any grease solids from your oil which can harm the quality of the cooking oil that we collect.  Any solids or chunks of grease may be thrown into your organics bin.  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.
