Blue Containers
Green Containers

One (1) BLACK container is sufficient for an average home. Please call to schedule removal of your second BLACK container now that you have a green.

One (1) BLUE container is usually sufficient for a household of two people. Should the size of your household change, additional BLUE containers can be provided for your household waste at no additional charge.

We have started utilizing the GREEN organics containers for designated residents. Please place your yard waste, food waste, and dog waste into the GREEN container.

Kitty litter/waste, diapers and overflow from your green container go into the BLACK container.

Additional BLACK containers will be charged a rental fee at a rate of $177.00 PER CONTAINER for one (1) year. Westminster and Midway City residents may request additional trash containers by calling (714) 893-3553. Containers will be delivered within 5 working days of your request and payment.
