Sanitation’s popular open houses conclude for the year at West LA Yard.

Sun Sets on Open House Fun

Public Works/Sanitation and Environment’s popular Open House program concluded its 2019 season with a big event June 29 at the West LA Yard. It was the final of six open houses for the year.

Each of Sanitation’s 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.

Grilling the (free) hot dogs for guests were Steve Deryiades, RCTO, 12 years of City service, Club Member (back); David Pinkney, RCTO, 30 years, Club Member (left); and Jon Reed, Supervisor, 34 years, Club Member.

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 was no charge for admission and all ages were welcome.

Congratulations to Sanitation’s Open House committees and volunteers for once again telling their story to their communities. And thanks to Felix Sanchez, Superintendent of the West LA Yard and Club Member, for hosting Alive!
