Watch For New Color-Coded Trash, Recycling Carts

Watch For New Color-Coded Trash, Recycling Carts

E.J. Harrison & Sons will begin delivering new trash and recycling carts that will comply with California’s Senate Bill 1383, which creates a statewide uniform color system for all carts, bins and roll-offs. The new containers will slowly roll out across the state in the coming years.

Meanwhile, residents will continue to use their green, blue and tan carts.

Here are the color changes coming, based on SB 1383 rules:
• New black carts will replace green trash carts.
• The blue recycle carts will remain blue.
• New green carts will replace the tan/brown carts that are used for yard/green waste.

While the state requires all carts to be replaced by 2036, Harrison expects to completely phase in the new carts within a few years

The state deadline for carts to begin to be replaced is Jan. 1, 2022.

The next generation of 32-, 64- and 96-gallon fully automated carts are slightly shorter than the ones they will replace, but they are wider and heavier, which should make them more stable during wind events.
New carts will be delivered to customers along with how-to flyers explaining exactly what to do with each cart.
