Green Materials

The City of Monrovia and Athens Services have developed a new waste collection and recycling program designed to make the City's residential waste and recycling services more environmentally friendly. The most important part of this new program is the conversion of your current manual green waste collection to a new automated green waste collection system.

The following items may be placed in your Green Barrel:

  • Grass Clippings
  • Leaves
  • Brush
  • Branches
  • Tree Trimmings
  • Other organic material less than 3 inches in diameter or 3 feet in length generated from landscapes or gardens.

NO Palm fronds, yucca leaves, bamboo, rocks, dirt or trash in green barrels. If found, barrels will be tagged and not picked up until the contamination is removed.
