Coming up in Elk Grove this week, October 3, 2022


Pink on Patrol
Elk Grove Police Department is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month in a big new way this year. A specially marked pink patrol vehicle will be on the streets and at local events this month. Breast cancer survivors/warriors are invited to sign the hood at these upcoming events:
October 5, 9-11 am, Coffee with a Cop (Rescate Coffee)
October 13, 4- 8pm, NeighborGood Market (District 56)
October 28, 5-8pm, Trunk or Treat (Old Town Plaza)
You can support the fight against breast cancer by giving to organizations like the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation.

Clean Air Benefits Everyone
In celebration of California Clean Air Day, SacRT is offering systemwide free rides for the first week of October. The free rides include bus, light rail, on-demand SmaRT Ride shuttles, SacRT GO paratransit service and SacRT’s e-van service. Anyone can ride SacRT for free through this Friday, October 7.
Transportation is the single biggest source of air pollution in California. On Clean Air Day, help clear the air by trying an alternative form of travel. Leave the car at home and try transit for free! Take the clean air day pledge.

Local Art Goes on Tour
The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center will host their 11th annual Art Tour this Saturday, October 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Meet local artists in an informal setting and support Elk Grove’s growing art scene. Free admission. Download the 2022 Art Tour Map

Fall is in the air. Here’s what to do when the leaves start dropping.
The City of Elk Grove operates a containerized green waste program but does not offer an on-street “claw” pickup service. Place leaves and other yard debris in your organic waste container—not in the street. 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 organic waste carts without an 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 elkgrovecity.org/recycle

Drive Up, Drop Off, Do Good
Help support our community with donations of new and unopened packaged items. A donation drive thru event is scheduled at City Hall (8401 Laguna Palms Drive) next Friday, October 7 (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Saturday, October 8 (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.). Donations will directly benefit Elk Grove residents through local non-profits including Elk Grove Food Bank Services, Elk Grove Homeless Assistance Resource Team, St. Vincent de Paul Society – Good Shepherd Catholic Church Conference, Friends of Elk Grove Animal Shelter, Humanitarian Action Network, and more. For a list of needed items, visit elkgrovecity.org/donationdrivethru
