Pandemic once again causes Sanitation
to postpone popular open houses.
Public Works: Public Works/Sanitation and Environment has postponed its popular slate of open houses again this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Each spring before the pandemic, each of Sanitation’s six waste shed district yards opened to the public in a series of free Saturday events. The Open House program showcased Sanitation’s residential curbside collection programs with the promotion of proper recycling practices and information about bulky item collections. Each event featured trash truck and equipment demonstrations in addition to facility tours, information booths, recycling games, and refreshments.
In 2018, more than 6,000 residents attended the open houses with more than 230 City Employees who volunteered their time to give back to the neighborhoods they serve.
Speaking for everyone in the City, we miss the popular Open Houses. Until they return, here are some images from previous years.
See you next year!
