Lynwood City Council recently approved new trash rates for residential, commercial and industrial properties in response to the new State organics recycling mandate. The City Council negotiated lower rates than originally proposed. The current rates and effective dates for the Solid Waste Service Fees are set forth in the chart below.

The City has an exclusive franchise agreement with Waste Resources, Inc. (“WRI”) for the collection and handling of solid waste and green waste, food scrap waste, and recycling within the City. The new increased rates for Solid Waste Service Fees are necessary for WRI to provide a third cart for recyclables required by the new recycling mandate.
