La Palma announces holiday closures, trash/street sweeping schedule

Since 2011, City staff use their floating holiday hours or other leave benefits to facilitate a winter holiday closure. To that end, all La Palma City offices (City Hall, Recreation, Public Works, and Police Administration) will be closed starting December 24, 2019, and will re-open January 2, 2020. The Police Department is always open for emergency services or for other matters requiring an urgent response from the City, such as water leaks.

Customers wishing to pay their municipal utility (water) bill during the break are encouraged to use the online portal at (click on “Pay Your Bill” at the top of the page), call EDCO at 714-522-3577, or use the dropbox, located outside City Hall. Trash collection services will be disrupted on November 28, December 25, and January 1. Trash collection will be pushed back one day throughout these periods.

EDCO Disposal will also be collecting holiday trees for recycling during a two-week period following December 25 using a separate collection truck. Street sweeping services will be cancelled during weeks of Thanksgiving (November 25-29), Christmas (December 23-27), and New Year’s (December 30, 2019 – January 3, 2020). Street sweeping will resume on Monday, January 6.
