ANAHEIM — Recycle Anaheim, the citywide curbside recycling program, is entering its final phases this week with the remaining residential neighborhoods beginning the program.
Residents in remaining neighborhoods throughout the city separated their garbage into 110-gallon, green and black containers for the first time.
"Mostly it's a hassle to have to separate all that trash,' said Anna Cano, a 35-year resident of an east Anaheim neighborhood, which experienced its first curbside recycling pickup last Thursday.
The trash collections mark the final phase of Anaheim Disposal Inc.'s program, which began in September, 1989, with 11,000 households as a pilot project.
Last March, the city approved expanding the program citywide, and since August the company has been phasing neighborhoods throughout the city into the project.
