RECYCLE ROSE has the best Adult Story. She's waiting for 
a visit from you!


Residents and visitors of the Downtown Kersting 
Court area will notice new trash receptacles have 
been installed during the week of October 14th. The 
new receptacles are manufactured by a com-pany 
named Big Belly and include the latest solar-powered 
compacting feature. The receptacles also are designed 
to alert the Public Works Department when they are 
nearing capacity, or if there are other issues that need 
to be addressed.

The Big Belly's accept both standard trash and 
recyclable items, which will be sorted at a material 
recovery center maintained by Athens Services. The 
compaction feature reduces refuse from spill-ing over 
between collections, improving both the environmental 
and aesthetic quality of the down-town area. For 
more information please contact the Department of Public Works at 626-355-7135


For several years, the Sierra Madre Environmental Action 
Council (SMEAC) has coordinated two clean-up 
events per year. 

 The October 26th event will take place from 8:00AM 
to noon, and volunteers are asked to wear closed-toed 
shoes, com-fortable clothing, and bring gloves and garden 
tools. Bailey Canyon Wilderness Park is located at 
451 W. Carter Ave., at the top of Grove St. 

Bring a friend!


Visit your polling site to 
cast your vote. Vote-by-
Mail voters may mail their 
ballots or deliver them to 
City Hall. Sierra Madreans 
who vote in person will also 
have the chance to use
