Athens Trash Services
On June 21, 2016, the City approved a new franchise agreement with Athens Services to serve as Monrovia’s exclusive provider of trash and recycling services Citywide. Services included in this agreement are:
- Residential Trash Service (Trash, Green Waste and Recycling)
- Multi-Family Trash Service (Trash, Green Waste, Recycling and Organics Recycling)
- Commercial Trash Service (Trash, Green Waste, Recycling and Organics Recycling)
- Old Town Trash Service (Trash, Green Waste, Recycling and Organics Recycling)
Part of this agreement also allows the City to request Athens Services to pick-up abandoned bulky items off the sidewalk, curb or parkway. Residents are still encouraged to call Athens Services to arrange a bulky item pick-up of their own items.
