Refuse & Recycling
In Long Beach, Refuse and recycling are collected on all holidays except Christmas (December 25) and New Year’s Day (January 1). When Christmas and New Year’s Day fall on a weekday, collection for the holiday and the remainder of that week will be delayed one day, ending on Saturday.
You can park on whichever side you want on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day because there will be no street sweeping. However, on Dec. 24 and 31, street sweeping will happen as scheduled.
Unless the parking meter sign says “Exempt on Holidays,” parking meters will be enforced on Christmas Day. Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve don’t count as holidays, so parking meters will be enforced Dec. 24 and 31.
All city libraries will close at 5 p.m. on Dec. 24 and 31 and be closed Christmas and New Year’s Day.
