2018 to 2019 Holiday Season Service Schedules for La Habra
For the Thanksgiving holiday, remember that trash collection will be delayed one day for Thursday and Friday only. Thursday's trash collection will take place on Friday November 23, 2018 and Friday's collections will take place on Saturday November 24, 2018. Normal schedules will resume the following week.
Christmas Day falls on Tuesday December 25th and as a result, trash service will be delayed by one day, each day, for the rest of the week. If your regular pickup day is Tuesday, your trash will be picked up on Wednesday and so on. Regular Friday customers that week will be picked up on Saturday, December 29. The trash pickup schedule for the week of January 1, 2019 will also follow a similar schedule. All trash services will be delayed for one day starting on January 1 through the end of the week with Friday services occurring on Saturday January 5, 2019.
Street Sweeping and Ticketing
On Thanksgiving day and the Friday after, street sweeping services will not occur and will not be made up for the entire week. In addition, sweeping citations will not be issued during the entire Thanksgiving holiday week. Regular sweeping and parking enforcement schedules will resume the following week.
Since Christmas and New Year's Day both fall on a Tuesday this year, street sweeping services will be delayed for one day, each day, starting on the Tuesday of that week through the remainder of that week. The Friday sweeping days for those weeks will not be made up. Parking enforcement for street sweeping will be delayed for those two weeks starting on December 24, 2018 and will continue again on a normal schedule starting on January 7, 2019.
The City of La Habra will suspend enforcement of the overnight parking ordinance during the holiday season.

La Habra to Offer Used Cooking Oil Collection through the 2018 to 2019 Holiday Season
The City of La Habra's annual Used Cooking Oil Collection Program will be available to La Habra residents through this year's holiday season. The program will start on November 15, 2018 and will continue until after the New Year ending on January 15, 2019. The program is held to offer residents a location to dispose of their holiday cooking oil. The process of deep frying a holiday turkey generates a large amount of waste oil. Through this program, residents will have an easy option for disposal. Cooking oil should never be disposed of down the drain or in the trash. This program is offered to La Habra residents by appointment only. Please call for an appointment through the Public Works Department at (562) 383-4170.
