Help Keep Your Neighborhood Clean
A little effort can prevent a big mess.
Gusty Santa Ana winds can cause problems with the collection of trash and recyclables. Containers frequently tip over causing spillage, and materials end up strewn throughout streets and neighborhoods. You can help keep your neighborhood clean on windy days by doing the following:
- Avoid placing trash and recycling out on windy days.
- Bag any excessive trash and recyclables that will not fit in your barrel. The waste hauler will collect all accumulated bags, and will service your containers, on your next scheduled collection day.
- Be sure to bag and tie trash before placing it in the barrel. This will make cleanup efforts easier should your barrel tip over.
