What can be recycled in my recycle bin?
City of Burbank Recycle Center
500 S Flower Street, Burbank CA 91502
**THE RECYCLE CENTER IS CLOSED
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***
Out of abundance of caution, the City of Burbank is closing the Recycle Center due to potential exposure to COVID-19 and therefore will NOT be open Tuesday-Saturday, as previously promoted.
While closed, the Center will adhere to all CDC and LA County Public Health Officer Guidelines as screening, possible testing and facility cleaning occurs. The future opening date has not yet been decided.
The Recycle Center staff that were exposed did not have any interactive roles with the public.
We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience during these ever-changing times.
Please continue to check back for further updates.
