The City of South Gate has partnered with Universal Waste Systems, Inc. (UWS) to provide curbside collection services for residents and businesses!

As part of new trash services beginning January 1, 2023, residents with cart service received new carts in November and December of 2022. With this new service, you will now separate household waste and recyclables into three carts, with organic waste placed in your new green cart.
