Elk Grove Week at a Glance
Week of November 4, 2019
We love a parade, don’t you?
Join the tradition of honoring those who have selflessly served our nation during Elk Grove’s annual Veterans Day parade on Monday, November 11. The opening ceremony commences at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the Elk Grove Shopping Center (9408 Elk Grove-Florin Road). At 11 a.m., the parade will proceed south on Elk Grove-Florin Road, ending at Elk Grove Regional Park. Streets will be closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for this important tribute to our service members. Questions? Contact Sophia Scherman at 916-718-9631 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t Pile On
On-street Leaf Piles Violate City Code and Could Lead to Flooding and Fines
Place leaves and other yard debris in your green waste container—not in the street. The City of Elk Grove operates a containerized green waste program but does not offer an on-street “claw” pickup service. If you have more green waste than container space, request an additional container by calling Republic Services at 916-635-2500. Residents can have up to three green waste carts without additional charge. Green waste can also be taken to the Recycle Area at the Special Waste Collection Center (9255 Disposal Lane) free of charge. For more information, visit www.elkgrovecity.org/recycle.
Fill the Need, Feed the Hope
