Solid Waste

Household Hazardous Waste
The purpose of the City's Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) program is to provide safe and convenient disposal of items that should not be mixed with regular trash.  HHW is collected at the Public Services Facility located at 101 B Avenue, on Saturdays between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  We are closed around the following holidays:  New Year's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. 
View Program Overview for more information and a list of items you may bring. This program is available to Coronado residents only. No business or contractor generated waste is permitted. 

Community Cleanup: Bulky Trash Curbside Collection and Free Mulch
Community Cleanup Week is scheduled twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall, and will occur on residents’ regularly scheduled residential curbside collection days. Place unwanted bulk items on the curb along with your regular carts by 6 a.m.

2019 Spring Cleanup: May 6-10
2019 Fall Cleanup: October 7-11
EDCO Holiday Schedule
These typically include broken appliances, water heaters, furniture, old mattresses (please wrap mattresses prior to setting out - special mattress disposal bags can be purchased at hardware stores or online), yard waste, and other miscellaneous bulky household items. All yard waste will be recycled and must be bagged or bundled. Tree trimmings should be cut into 3-foot lengths and tied securely into bundles not greater than 18 inches in diameter.

Debris from contractors, landscapers or commercial businesses will not be accepted. No hazardous waste will be accepted.

In addition, free mulch will be available for self-load/self-haul at the 100 block of B Avenue by the Little League field. Bring a shovel to get your compost while it lasts! If you plan to haul your compost in an open truck or trailer, please remember to bring a tarp to cover your material.

Go to EDCO’s website for more information.
