As city crews continue to remove fallen trees and other green storm debris from Pasadena streets and parks, residents are asked to help by moving their green debris out to the gutter as soon as possible for easy pickup. To recycle all green material and avoid contamination of the resulting mulch, please place only non-bagged green material out for pickup. The city plans to recycle 100 percent of the green material into mulch that will be used in parks and open space citywide.
A east-to-west green debris removal process is now underway and will follow existing trash pickup routes the day after normal refuse collection dates. 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.
Green waste drop-off locations will also be established at Eaton Blanche Park, 3100 E. Del Mar Blvd., and Robinson Park, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., from Wednesday, Dec. 7, through Friday, Dec. 16. Green material must be placed inside the large bins on site, which will not be available on Sundays.
Altadena residents can drop their tree debris at the lower parking lot of Farnsworth Park on Sat. -Sun., Dec. 10 and 11, from 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Free mulch from the green recycling effort will be available to the public beginning Dec. 15 at both Pasadena drop-off locations.
