Temporary Trash Bins

A street encroachment permit from the City of Alhambra is required to place the bin on the street. This permit can be obtained through the Public Works Department by calling 1-626-570-5067.

Temporary trash bins are ideal for disposing large amounts of trash, when moving or cleaning out the garage or attic, removing large trees, small construction or remodeling projects, or any other short-term endeavor.

How to Order a Temporary Trash Bin

Republic Services (1-800-299-4898 or by email alhambra@republicservices.com) offers temporary trash bins. Standard rental fee applies to deliver and haul away waste on a one-time basis; at least 24-hour notice required in advance of the time delivery of the temporary bin is requested (Monday through Friday delivery only). If you have more than one bin full of discards the same rental charge will apply each time you have to have the bin emptied. No more than 600 pounds. may be placed in the bin. Do not place dirt or quantities of brick, concrete, tile or roofing material in the bin. If you have a large amount of construction or demolition debris, order a "lowboy" or roll-off box. No bundling of items is required.
