New Year’s resolutions are often easier to make than to keep. Here’s an easy one: Let’s keep Pasadena looking beautiful in 2010 and beyond!
Trash Cans - Trash cans and recycle bins should be placed at the curb no more than 24 hours before or after your regular trash pick-up day. Then they must be stored in an area that is not visible from the street.
Shopping Carts - Shopping carts are the property of supermarkets and should not be removed from the premises under any circumstances. Call 744-8227 to report abandoned shopping carts in your neighborhood and they’ll be picked up in a day or so.
Unkempt Yards - Overgrown yards, vehicles on front lawns, roofs in disrepair, broken windows, dilapidated porches and other problems are unsightly and potentially dangerous. Property owners who need help with cleanup, repairs and other work may qualify for free or low-cost assistance. Visit www.cityofpasadena.net/mash or call
Graffiti - The city of Pasadena has a zero tolerance policy for graffiti and is committed to removing it within 48 hours of being reported. Call 744-7622 any time, day or night, to give the address or location, a description of the graffiti and other information.
