Another Chance to Toss Tree Debris

You can stop by Farnsworth Park on Saturday between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The county has announced a Saturday event to aid in the cleanup of tree debris. For Altadena residents, the lower parking area of will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. to collect tree debris and yard waste.

For those who wish to go that route, the county released the following information:

Residents are urged to call their local waste hauler prior to utilizing the service for instructions on how to prepare their tree debris for drop-off.  Proof of residency is required.

Residents are also advised to continue to using their large green waste bins for smaller tree debris and to contact their waste hauler to arrange pick-up of additional excess tree debris on their regular trash collection day.

Unacceptable items for green waste bins include palm tree branches, bamboo and soil, painted or treated wood.

The removal and cleaning of tree waste or green debris that are not in the public right of way is the responsibility of private property owners.  Waste and debris should not be dumped in public rights of way or flood control channels.

For further information, residents of county unincorporated communities can also call the county’s trash collection hotline at (800) 993-5844.

I have NO means to carry all of this tremendous debris laying next to the curb in front of my house to a dump site. Most of it is palm branches from trees that I don't own(belong to the county). How come the county hasn't cleaned the mess on our street (Maiden Lane, just above New York Drive) like they have done in years past? We see bobcats clearing other streets or just sitting north of us on our street but not doing any clean-up.
