E-Waste Free Pick-Up

Old electronic equipment cannot be thrown away in the trash - it must be recycled, according to State law. These are items such as computers, televisions, microwaves, cellphones, telephones, stereos, typewriters, fax machines, and more.

Free e-waste collection is available to homes, apartments, and mobile homes parks in Paramount. To schedule a pick-up, call CalMet Services at (562) 259-1239 at least one day before your normal trash day, then place the e-waste at your curbside on trash day.

Have Large Items Hauled Away

It's illegal to dump anything in the alleys, streets, sidewalks, or public rights-of-way in Paramount. Owners of property adjacent to where such dumping occurs can be fined.

But there's an easy way to dispose of large items that won't fit in a regular trash container. call CalMet Services at (562) 259-1239, extension 244, on the day before your normal trash pick-up. Then place the items on the curb with your trash.

Keep in mind that things like lumber, concrete, auto parts, and toxins such as paint and used motor oil cannot be removed in this way.

The service is free for single-family residences and multi-family properties with trash barrels, not bins. For residential properties with trash bins and for commercial accounts there is a separate item charge.
