Discover Recycling Open house
May 19, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
LASAN holds six “Discover Recycling” Open Houses every year. Each of our wasteshed district yards will open to the public in a series of free Saturday events. The Open House program showcases LA Sanitation’s residential curbside collection programs with an emphasis on proper recycling practices and bulky item collection while strengthening partnerships with City residents. The Open House will feature trash trucks and equipment demonstrations in addition to facility tours, information booths, recycling games, and refreshments. Last year, more than 7,000 residents attended the Open House events with 290 city employees who volunteered their time to “give back” to the neighborhoods they serve throughout the year. There is no charge for admission and all ages are welcome, but we do request that pets be left at home for safety. Free food and giveaways are available while supplies last.
LA Sanitation’s Lopez Canyon Environmental Education Center will host an activity booth about the city’s green bin recycling program and give away small vegetable plants. Visitors will plant saplings to take home, use mulch and compost made from residential yard trimmings, and learn about “closed loop” recycling. More than 2,200 vegetable plants were potted and given away to residents last year. LA Sanitation will also partner with “City Plants” to provide 50 fruit and 50 shade trees for adoption by city residents, on a first-come-served basis at each yard, while supplies last. (L.A. 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 also be collected, which is provided by a grant from CalRecycle. (L.A. city residents must present valid identification and a current DWP bill to drop off used tires. Note: a maximum of nine passenger and/or light truck tires will be accepted, but tires on rims and used tires from businesses will not be accepted.)
