ORGANICS RECYCLING IN AZUSA
´╗┐STARTS JANUARY 1, 2022
Effective January 1, 2022, ALL residents and businesses in California are required to recycle their organics waste to reduce methane emissions from landfills. This means trash collection and recycling services in the City of Azusa will change in order to comply with the State law (SB 1383). In the coming weeks, the City and Athens Services will be providing outreach and communications regarding the changes.
HOLIDAY TREE & TRASH COLLECTION
Athens Services will collect holiday trees on normal pickup days from December 26, 2021 through January 14, 2022. Please remove stands, ornaments, lights and tinsel. Trees with flocking or fire retardants are acceptable. Cut trees in half if longer than 6 feet in length. If you miss the date for recycling, cut up tree and place next to yard waste container.

Since the Christmas and New Year holidays fall on weekends, there will be no changes to Monday-Friday trash collection services the week of December 20 & 27. December 24 and December 31 are both a regular trash pickup days.

Note: There will be no change in street sweeping schedule on December 24 and 31.
PROTECT & RESPECT WILD ANIMALS - KEEP THEM WILD
Coyotes play an important role in the ecosystem, helping to keep rodent populations under control. They are by nature fearful of humans.

The behavior of a wild coyote will change if they are given access to human food and garbage. They lose caution and fear of humans and may cause property damage. They could also threaten human safety. When they do so, they are usually killed.

Help prevent deadly conflicts for these wild animals. Visit the City of Azusa's website to learn more.
