Stop Asian Hate 400px
The past 12 months have been difficult for many Angelenos between the pandemic, civil unrest, and other disturbances to our daily lives. Now with the recent and deplorable instances of Asian hate crimes across the nation, I know some of our LASAN family may feel even more uneasy. Over 15% of our team are of Asian and/or Filipino descent.

I want to reiterate our commitment to equity and diversity as well as our intolerance of hatred and discrimination. If they experience or witness discrimination in any form at work, our staff has been asked to please report it to their supervisor so that it can be immediately addressed. No one should have to endure words or acts of hatred.

Together, we fight back by embracing our differences and by showing extra kindness toward every man, woman, and child that we encounter. We are all humans, we are Angelenos, we are civil servants, we are a family, and we support each other.

Together, we stand in solidarity with the Asian community and vow to #StopAsianHate.

The standard container allotment for single-family dwellings and each unit of a duplex based on the SRF is one 60-gallon black container for refuse; one 90-gallon green container for yard trimmings; one 90 gallon blue container for recyclables. The standard allowance for multi-family dwellings is one 60-gallon black container per dwelling unit for refuse; one 90 gallon green container for yard trimmings for the lot; one 90-gallon blue container for recyclables for every four units.  Some households have brown bins, by request, for horse manure. By placing material in the proper bins, you can prevent contamination that occurs when non-recyclable items are discarded in the BLUE bin and when anything other than yard trimmings are placed in the GREEN bin. Non-recyclable items such as paper or boxes with grease or food residue, treated wood and wood-products, cloth/fabric, and fats/oils/grease in sealed containers belong in your BLACK bin. Hazardous waste and e-waste may be taken to S.A.F.E. Centers. If you have questions, need to request a new bin, or have items that are too large for your bins, please call our Customer Care Center at 1-800-773-2489.

Did you notice the breeze blowing through the branches of the trees? Did you find yourself wishing that Los Angeles had more tree-lined streets?   From more shade to more…
