|Garbage Disposal Districts|
Garbage Disposal Districts (GDD) are areas within the unincorporated County of Los Angeles where garbage collection and disposal services are provided to residents and businesses by private waste haulers who contract with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.
GDD services include weekly collection of refuse, recyclables, and green waste from their respective carts or dumpsters, as well as, unlimited collection of bulky items and electronic waste, upon request, at no additional charge. See GDD Services for more information.
Fees for GDD services are assessed each year on the property tax bill. Rates may vary from one GDD to another based on factors such district size, service location, and waste haulers' operational costs.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works currently operates the following seven GDDs: Athens-Woodcrest-Olivita, Belvedere, Firestone, Lennox, Malibu, Mesa Heights, and Walnut Park. See District Information to find your GDD.
