Recently there have been incidents where unknown persons have inappropriately left discarded items on the sidewalks around Thain Way and on Maybell Avenue. These items were NOT left out for Green Waste pickup on recycle days. This is a reminder that this is our home and all personal items must be disposed of properly.

Dumping items on the street is illegal. If you should see a dumping in progress, please call 9-1-1. If you notice the items at a later time, you should call Zero Waste at the City of Palo Alto (650-496-5910) and they will remove it.

One other reminder, please wait until late Tuesday afternoons to put out your recycling and trash containers and roll them back by Wednesday evening. Help us keep our lovely Barron Square an attractive place to live.
