Open Houses: Wait ’Til Next Year
Public Works/Sanitation and Environment has postponed its popular slate of open houses this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, and looks to resume the program in 2021.
In previous years, 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, the Club misses the popular Open Houses. Until 2021, here are some images from previous years.
See you next year!
