Family Fun Day

Recycled Couture Is All the Rage
The average U.S. person throws away 81 lbs. of clothing per year. To help reduce the waste in our landfills, the City’s Special Waste Collection Center(SWCC) has added a new collection bin for used clothing and other household textiles (i.e. drapes, bedding, pillows, etc.).
Diverting clothes and textiles from the trash to these bins could reduce the tonnage Elk Grove trash trucks deliver to local landfills by up to 5%. When a resident drops off their material in the collection bin, our recycling partner, Green Team, will sort, recycle, and repurpose those items — 45% are re-used as apparel; 30% are converted into industrial polishing/wiping cloths and 20% are processed into fiber to be manufactured into new products.
So if you’re cleaning out the closet, keep it out of the trash cart and consider donating or recycling your clothing and textiles. The SWCC accepts material at no charge to Elk Grove residents Sunday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Trail Crossing Update
A project to construct a bicycle and pedestrian bridge crossing over State Route 99 at Laguna Creek was recently awarded a $6.8M grant through the Regional ATP program. The City’s application was ranked the highest in the SACOG region. This grant, in addition to prior grant funding received and Congressional Appropriation, fully funds the project. The project will include a trail extension to the east to connect to the Camden Trail and create a continuous 7-mile trail segment within the City. Construction is anticipated to start in 2026.
