Sanitation’s popular open houses at six yards begin May 4.

Open Houses Start This Month

Sanitation has released its schedule of popular open houses for 2019.

Each of Sanitation’s six waste shed district yards will open to the public in a series of free Saturday events. The Open House program showcases Sanitation’s residential curbside collection programs with the promotion of proper recycling practices and information about bulky item collections. Each event will feature trash truck and equipment demonstrations in addition to facility tours, information booths, recycling games, and refreshments.

Last year, 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.

There is no charge for admission and all ages are welcome, but Sanitation requests that pets be left at home for safety.

Visitors will learn about the benefits of green recycling, pot new plants and experience the recycling loop. More than 2,200 plants were potted and given away to residents last year. Sanitation will also partner with City Plants to provide shade trees for adoption by City residents, on a first-come-served basis at each yard, while supplies last. (City residents must present valid identification with their city address or a current DWP bill to adopt a tree. Note: The limit is one tree per property address.)

Used tires from City residents will be collected, provided by a grant from CalRecycle. (City residents must present valid identification and a current DWP bill. Note: A maximum of nine passenger and/or light truck tires will be accepted but tires on rims and tires from businesses will not be accepted.)
