By Scott Sherman, District 7
Earlier this month, my office teamed with San Diego’s Environmental Services Department to hold a community cleanup and recycling event. Residents had the opportunity to clean up their neighborhood and dispose of old appliances, electronics, and other unneeded items in their home and to protect the environment.
To help spread the word, my office walked over 1,100 homes in Linda Vista to pass out flyers and speak with residents about the event. In addition to promoting the community cleanup, walking the community gave me an opportunity to meet with residents and discuss neighborhood issues.
Thanks to the hard work of the community, The Environmental Services Department collected over 30 tons of trash and recyclables that residents cleaned up from their streets or cleaned out from their homes.
Collecting over 30 tons of trash and recycling is a great sign of the involvement and love that Linda Vistans have for their community and I am proud to represent this area.
If you may have missed the cleanup event, please visit ESD’s website for information regarding future events: www.sandiego.gov/environmental-services/
As always, if there are any issues in the community, please don’t hesitate to contact my office at 619-236-6677 or email me at ScottSherman@SanDiego.Gov.
