Sanitation’s popular open houses at six yards return after pandemic pause.

Open Houses Begin This Month

Public Works’ Sanitation and Environment has released the schedule of its popular open houses for 2023.

These are Sanitation’s first open houses since they were paused for three years during the pandemic.

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.

In 2019, the last open house before the break, 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.
