APRIL IS CLEAN & GREEN MONTH IN AZUSA
Every April, the Azusa City Council encourages residents and businesses alike to take advantage of City sponsored programs to discard unwanted bulky items, trash, toxic waste, and old used tires throughout the city.
“In an effort to maintain a tradition of making Azusa a cleaner and greener, the Azusa City Council has once again declared April as ‘Azusa Clean and Green Month’.” said Azusa Mayor Joseph R. Rocha.
This month-long project annually inspires many Azusans to get into the spring-cleaning spirit.
Below are some programs and services from the City that residents can take advantage of to help make Azusa cleaner, greener and more beautiful.
