As city crews continue to remove fallen trees and other green windstorm debris from Pasadena streets and parks, residents are being asked to help by moving their debris out to the street for easy pickup.
The city plans to recycle 100 percent of the green material collected.
A systematic east-to-west green debris removal process is now underway and will follow existing solid waste collection routes the day after normal refuse collection dates. Residents are asked to place their green debris out as soon as possible. The deadline for getting rid of green recyclable waste by taking it to the curb will be on residents’ normal trash pickup day the week of Dec. 12.
To recycle all the green material and avoid contamination of the resulting mulch, please place only unbagged green material out for pickup. Other non-green debris resulting from the windstorm will be collected separately by scheduling a bulky-item pickup.
In addition, green waste drop-off locations will be established at Eaton Blanche Park, 3100 E. Del Mar Blvd., and Robinson Park, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., from Dec. 7 through 16. Green material must be placed inside the large bins on site, which will be open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Free mulch from the recycling effort will be available to the public at both debris stations beginning Thursday, Dec. 15.
