Cart colors, usage and, in the case of Green Waste,

Additional Carts (or smaller-size Carts) are available
on request.
One Truck for Both Yard Waste and
Trash Will Reduce Pavement Damage
Special split-body design keeps yard waste
and recyclables separate.
CARTS: When and Where to
Set ‘em Out/Put ‘em Back
Set carts out by 6:00 a.m. on collection day, but no
earlier than 5:00 p.m. the day before.
Position carts so their front surface is at the fog-line,
the handle and wheels facing your house
Retrieve carts and place them in your enclosure or
otherwise off the street and out of sight no later
than 8:00 p.m.
And, if you sign up for the optional Roll-Out
Service, you needn’t worry about any of the
above. Just have your carts readily available for
the service.

your home during the coming fire season.

SEAL/SEA LION BIZ
There have been newspaper reports about more
marine deaths due to the toxins in the algae - but
luckily we have not seen an increase in dead seals
and /or sea lions on the beach. If you spot a beached
animal that needs to be rescued, please call
310.457.WILD.
(MORE)
If you do see a dead seal or sea lion near your
home, call the Labor Exchange (310.317.4717) and
ask for someone there to bury the remains. The
Road Association has trained the men and we pay
for their time.
DUES-R-DUE!

Malibu Road Association does, here’s a partial
list:

your dues.

Other signage.

Weekly road cleanup.

Advocacy/liaison with City, County and

find archived back-issues of our
newsletter, as well as pertinent
information you can use.
______________________________________
Remember, your Malibu Road Association is here
to serve in any way it can, renters & owners alike.
Our board Members volunteer their time – for
all of us, so c’mon – join the Malibu Road
Association – and if you can afford the time,
we’d love to have your help!
One big challenge your Association faces is
finding a way to reach all of the newer Malibu
Road residents/owners. If we can't find them we
can't ask them to join. So, if you live near a new
resident who may not know about us – PLEASE
give us a heads-up about them (and, if you can,
tell them about us, and he valuable services we
provide) and we will send a special welcoming
letter. Or if you are moving, please tell the new
owner how great we are and give us their
name(s) for our records.
If you receive a dues request with this
newsletter, it is because our records show you
have not yet paid the 2008 dues. PLEASE join
and send your check today. Or, save postage and
pay via credit card (using PayPal), at
www.MalibuRoad.org!
