Scavenging/Taking of Recyclables/Privacy Concerns

It is illegal in Glendale for an outside party to take recyclables from your City-issued recycling or refuse container.

Scavenging should be reported to the Glendale Police Department by calling 818-548-4911. Section 8.44.180 of the Glendale Municipal Code prohibits tampering with any refuse or recycling container.

To assure privacy, shred confidential mail and certain financial information before placing such documents (in a closed paper or clear plastic bag) in the recycling container.
