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


Republic Services (1-800-299-4898) 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-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 lbs. 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, it might be more appropriate to order a “lowboy” or roll-off box. No bundling of items is required. 

Direct Disposal is a recycling facility, certified by CalRecycle, that can handle up to 174 tons a day of construction and demolition material. Located at 3720 Noakes Street, Los Angeles 90023, it processes wood, metal, concrete, drywall, cardboard, you name it! The company can also provide any recycling reports needed and can complete any LEED requirements. For more information, please call 714-625-7544.

NOTE: No hazardous waste or electronic waste may be placed in any temporary waste bin. Take this type of waste to a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection event. HHW includes products such as used motor oil and filters, paint, turpentine, acid or lye-based cleaners, household and car batteries, pesticides and garden herbicides. Electronic waste includes VCR's, stereos, fax machines, copiers, computer keyboards and cellular phones. To find out about upcoming HHW/E-Waste collection events, call 1 (888) CLEAN LA, or visit Clean LA's website to find a collection event near you.


New Ballot Format

MeasureAL is the only local item on your ballot. Please make sure to find the local section of your ballot and participate.


An innovative voter-centered approach to voting for Los Angeles County begins in 2020. In March 2020, the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters will be experimenting with a new ballot format and voting system – Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) where new voting technology will be implemented and City-related elections and ballot measures appear in a different place on your ballot.  

Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) was developed by the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) in 2009 to address an aging voting system and an increasingly large and complex electorate. The project seeks a collaborative approach to voting system design that will put voters at the center and maximize stakeholder participation. Through field research and coalition building, the RR/CC has pioneered a voter-centered approach to voting system design and development.

The entire ballot format and voting system will look different, and the City of Alhambra wants to make sure our voters understand these changes and can fully participate in the election. To get more information or to experience the new format, visit: the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters at www.lavote.net .

Changes in State Voter Registration Laws

Exciting news! Due to recent changes in California voter registration laws, eligible Alhambra residents now have more time to register to vote and participate in the upcoming March 3 Municipal Election!  

If you’ve recently moved and need to re-register, or are registering to vote for the first time, you can register to vote on the same day of the election by visiting any voting center in Los Angeles County.  For more information, visit the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters: www.lavote.net.
